Ukraine is "advancing" towards "the European family", while Russia is "getting closer to a life behind the 'iron curtain'", Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Chmygal said on Friday on the 100th day of the Russian invasion.

“Ukraine is confidently moving towards its goal: to live in a democratic, free country, within the European family,” said Mr. Chmygal in a message on Telegram.
Russia, she, “is getting closer to life behind the iron curtain and isolation from the developed world”, he lambasted.
“Our destiny is only freedom”, further supported the Ukrainian Prime Minister, affirming that “Ukraine will undoubtedly win” the war against its Russian neighbor.
Kyiv hopes to obtain official status as a candidate for membership of the European Union by the end of June, even if the Twenty-Seven are divided on this question. French President Emmanuel Macron, President-in-Office of the EU, estimated in early May that Ukraine's accession would take "decades", and in the meantime proposed the creation of a "European political community" to secure faster Ukraine to Europe.
