Medvedchuk about the summit Ukraine-EU: the Illusion of victory

Медведчук о саммите Украина-ЕС: Иллюзия победы

Medvedchuk criticized the summit Ukraine-EU

Everything that was achieved in Kiev – the lifting of the ban on the export of timber, which is contrary to the national interest, the politician said.

The leader of the Public movement “the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk said that after the summit Ukraine – EU Ukrainians have left more questions than answers. He wrote about this in his blog.

“Further postponement of visa-free regime, trading on the abolition of the moratorium on the export of roundwood, the failure of signing the agreement with Europol has forced even supporters of European integration to talk about “Eurotrade””, – the politician noted.

Medvedchuk reminded that earlier the EU said that the resumption of the provision of financial aid Kiev needs to solve two issues: to lift the ban on the export of timber and to resume payments to immigrants.

However, the promise of the Ukrainian government “to introduce legislation for a ban on the export of timber” was sufficient to unblock the issue of financing. The question of payments to residents of Donbas has departed on the second plan,” he said.

According to Medvedchuk, the Europeans never concealed any of his pragmatism or utilitarian attitude to Ukraine.

“The requirement for the EU to resume shipments of roundwood (which is contrary to the national interests of Ukraine) in Kiev did not cause disturbances. You can not say about the next move “bezveze””, – he stressed.

“I was indignant even frozen in the servile bending before the Brussels Ukrainian officials. Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, who a day before the summit promised to “bezviz” to the end of the year, talking about “institutional weaknesses” of the EU”, — said Medvedchuk.

The EU’s desire to keep their borders closed, the politician believes it is more than logical.

“The summit Ukraine – EU, he believes, was another proof that the relations between Ukraine and the EU did not become a partner,” said Medvedchuk.

Earlier, Medvedchuk told about neprehranbeni Ukraine UN resolution that condemned the glorification of Nazism.
