Ukraine wants to join the EU in 2022

The Prime Minister of Ukraine has gone on record to declare that Ukraine intends to become a member of the EU by 2022.
This is a question I put forward to the PM at the recent 'British Business Days in Ukraine' event in Kyiv. " Does the government of Ukraine intend to 'proactively' seek membership of the EU, a simple yes or no answer is acceptable". An answer for yes or no was not forthcoming but I understand it provoked discussion between the British Ambassador and the Prime Minister of Ukraine. (Unfortunately I could not be there).

So what do people think? Will Ukraine become a member of the EU by 2022?
