In a Friday video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy slammed European Union leaders for refusing to fast-track Ukraine’s application to join the bloc and called on them to “do more.”

Leaders of the 27 EU member states met in Versailles, France, on Thursday, and ultimately concluded that the bloc would not speed up Ukraine’s application.

Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland were in favor, while France, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands were not, The Guardian reported. Accession to the EU typically takes multiple years.

Zelenskyy said on Friday: “A very important meeting of the leaders of the European Union took place yesterday … We know what was said at this meeting. What all leaders said. Who specifically spoke. Who supported. Who remained silent.”

“How do we evaluate the decision made? It’s very simple: it must be stronger. This is not what we expect.”

He said: “The European Union must do more. It must do more for us, for Ukraine. And for itself.”

Notably, Zelenskyy could be seen outdoors in the video. Most of his video addresses were filmed indoors amid multiple reports suggesting he was the target of assassination attempts.
