9:30 АM KYIV– Olga Stefanishyna, Vice Prime Minister for the European Integration of Ukraine;
– Katarina Mathernova, EU Ambassador to Ukraine
Press conference entitled: “Results of the European Commission’s report on Ukraine’s progress within the Enlargement Package: what’s next?”

Why this is interesting:

In 2023, Ukraine was included into the Enlargement Package for the first time, and Ukraine took part in its preparation as a candidate country.
The Report on Ukraine’s progress within the framework of the Enlargement Package is expected to come out on Wednesday, November 8. This Report is expected to provide a detailed assessment of Ukraine’s implementation of the European Commission’s seven recommendations, which were announced together with the status of a EU candidate country. This is when Ukraine expects to receive the recommendation on starting the accession negotiations. But then the European Council will still need to decide on the start of negotiations. The latter is expected to be made in December this year
