On June 16th, the leaders of France, Germany and Italy gave some support to the Ukrainian request for EU Candidate status. While Candidate status may lead to membership, to me it looks like a promise to hold structured talks about holding structured talks on a large number of chapters, which tend to take years. Turkey has been a candidate for more than two decades and no resolution is in sight.
What I would like to know is how the public and media in Ukraine understand the current situation. What are their expectations about the timeline? Is there a consensus view or are there divergent expectations between various experts and different segments of society?
I hope for answers from people who speak the language and follow the local news. Opinion polls would be even better, but I wonder if they exist.
