Austria wants to change the EU treaty to let Ukraine in

Published 4 May 2022 at 10.23

According to the minister, EU countries should consider a “radical treaty change” if they are serious about Ukraine’s membership and want to prevent the country from falling under Russian domination.

The rules in the treaty are, among other things, to prevent EU grants from disappearing to corrupt governments, but according to Austria, Ukrainian membership must be allowed to cost money.

– Let us act collectively and invest our (taxpayers’, FT’s note) money in the same way as we talk, says Schallenberg, who himself is a professional politician with many years of experience working in Brussels.

Then it’s time for Kosovo and other Balkan countries to join.

– This is not Europe’s backyard but its veranda. These countries are surrounded by EU countries, he says.
