      (BBC) It will take decades for Ukraine to be accepted into the European Union, France’s Emmanuel Macron has said.

      In a speech to the EU’s parliament in Strasbourg, he instead suggested Ukraine could join a “parallel European community” while it awaited a decision.

      This would allow non-EU members to join Europe’s security architecture in other ways, said President Macron.

      Ukraine began the process of applying to join the bloc in February this year, four days after Russia’s invasion.
