On June 23, 2022, Ukraine received the status of a candidate for EU membership. All leaders of the 27 EU countries voted for this at the summit in Brussels.
Benefits that Ukraine receives as a candidate for EU membership:

- access to financial assistance from countries preparing to join the European Union
- increasing the attractiveness for investors and security of business
- the EU will consider the allocation of funds for the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine as a contribution to the welfare of a potential member of the European Union, and not a third country

- introduce legislation on the procedure for selecting judges of the Constitutional Court
- complete the selection of candidates for members of the High Council of Justice and the selection of candidates for the High Qualification Commission of Judges of Ukraine
