Tusk reported this on Twitter:
“A decisive day for Ukraine. Free elections and peaceful change of power = strong Ukrainian democracy. Congratulations to Volodymyr Zelensky. The EU is determined to continue its support.”
In addition, the Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and the EU enlargement negotiations, Johannes Hahn, voiced priority expectations from the Zelensky presidency.
The European Commissioner Han wrote this on Twitter:
“I congratulate the Ukrainian people on their show of democratic maturity and the President elect, Volodymyr Zelensky, on his victory. This result is a very strong mandate to fight corruption more vigourosly and to free the state from oligarchic state capture.”
“The reform process and the implementation of the AssociationAgreement must continue at full speed in order for the Ukrainian people to fully benefit from it. In the final months of my mandate I will do all I can to support Ukraine on this path.”
