Ukraine’s accession to the EU could be delayed for years, Macron proposes a new European Alliance.

 French President Emmanuel Macron has offered a way for Ukraine to work more closely with the EU. Acknowledging it would take time for Ukraine to become a member of the EU, Macron proposed creating a new, less formal grouping of like-minded countries. Such a political community would also be open to the UK, allowing it to become more involved in European affairs post-Brexit. Membership criteria would be based on geography and a shared set of values, and the new union’s oversight could include political coordination, collective security, and energy, Macron later told reporters.
