"Poroschenko will Ukraine bald in die EU führen" (source: http://www.zeit.de/politik/ausland/2014-06/amtantritt-poroschenko-ukraine)

Does that mean, "Poroschenko wants to lead Ukraine into the UE soon"?

But how would one say in German, "Poroschenko wants Ukraine to be in the EU"?
Would one translate it as, "Poroschenko will, dass Ukraine in die EU sein?"

    Hi Patrick, your first translation is correct.

    As for the second sentence, in my opinion a literal translation would sound strange. I would say something like:

    - Poroschenko will, dass die Ukraine der EU beitritt
    - Poroschenko will, dass die Ukraine in die EU kommt
