The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, believes that Ukraine will become a member of the European Union.

This is the building where the European Commission is located, in front of it are the flags of full EU members.
Ursula von der Leyen also emphasized that she is in favor of strengthening business cooperation. "Our meeting is a signal to European investors," she explained.
