Meeting is set to take place in Prague on May 3-4
Foreign Affairs Ministers of the Visegrad Group (Czechia, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary) are to hold a formal meeting in Prague on May 3-4. They are expected to be joined by the members of the E.U. Eastern partnership which include Ukraine.
The conflict in Donbas and economic reforms implemented by Kyiv should top the meeting's agenda. This is according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in Ukraine.
"I think it will be the main topic. There will be representatives of other countries there, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden. They could help Ukraine implement political and economic changes", Czech journalist Ondrej Soukup says in an interview with RFE/RL.
Ukrainian MP Volodymyr Ariev, in turn, claims European countries are motivated to support Ukraine.
"It's within the interests of the Visegrad Group members to help Ukraine become a member of the E.U. Because every country would be interested to have a stable and peaceful neighbour", Ariev stated.
The Visegrad Group is considered to be one of the most active regional associations in Europe. It has become a bridge between Ukraine and the European Union.
