The author analyses the current situation in the accession negotiations between Turkey and the European Union. The paper gives an idea of the main factors and obstacles for further negotiation and successful accession of Turkey. The author also offers a detailed description of the accession requirements worked out by the EU which are to be implemented by Turkey in order to gain a full EU membership. Special emphasis is put on the efforts made by the Turkish government for implementing the reforms in all spheres of the country life in accordance with the Copenhagen criteria. Particular attention is paid to the problem of Euro-skepticism in the light of which Turkey's accession to the EU is treated as a threat to the existence of the European Union.
