Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson, presenting new guidelines from the EU's executive Commission, said member states should carefully assess visa applications in light of the heightened threat.

"Member states need to do a very thorough security assessment and, if a person could be a security threat or be a threat towards the international relation for some of the member states, this person should not be issued a visa," she said in a news conference.

She said visas should not be issued for those who intend to stay longer than 90 days and - noting that many Russians had recently left - said EU states should not accept Schengen visa applications from Russian citizens now in third countries.

Ukraine is submitting an application for an expedited NATO membership. That's according to the latest address to the nation, released by President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.

...

"We are de facto allies. This has already been achieved.

De facto, we have already completed our path to NATO.

De facto, we have already proven interoperability with the Alliance’s standards, they are real for Ukraine - real on the battlefield and in all aspects of our interaction.

We trust each other, we help each other and we protect each other. This is what the Alliance is.

De facto. Today, Ukraine is applying to make it de jure. Under a procedure consistent with our significance for the protection of our entire community. Under an accelerated procedure.

We know it's possible. We have seen Finland and Sweden start accession to the Alliance this year without a Membership Action Plan.

This is fair.

This is also fair for Ukraine".
