Driving the country into a free trade zone with the EU, the government has destroyed the domestic economy, said the leader of Ukrainian choice.

Ukraine should be a normal country, to live in the neighborhood and friendship with the countries that surround us. This was stated by the leader of the public movement Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people Viktor Medvedchuk in the air Tvcenter.

“Today we are closed and are in the Wake of a free trade zone with the EU. In 2012 and 2013, I founded and headed the Ukrainian choice, advocated Ukraine’s accession to the Customs Union. Today it is not the Customs Union and the Eurasian economic community. We were then told that awaits Ukraine, and, unfortunately for us, we were not mistaken. Because, driving us into a free trade zone with the EU, destroyed our economy, decreased exports, GDP collapsed. Today we have no markets in Europe, it’s all nonsense and bluff. Imagine: in 2013, exports to EU countries in Ukraine were in absolute figures 16.7 billion You’ll laugh – after a free trade area, which entered into force on 1 January 2016, it is the end of 2017 is also 16.7 billion For this it was necessary to limit myself?” – said Medvedchuk.

He stressed that from the moment when Ukraine joined the EU sanctions against Russia, Russia has responded with counter-sanctions that have destroyed the country’s economy.

“Based on our Ukrainian economy, we should not have to do this, we should not have to join these sanctions. Then this relationship continued”, – said Medvedchuk.

Note, Medvedchuk believes that while the authorities are the people working in the interests of lenders and Western donors, nor prosperous nor successful, nor even just an independent Ukraine will not be.
