MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. The European Union is not living out its last days, Russia’s ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said at a press conference.
"I don’t share the opinion that the EU is bound to collapse and is living out its last days as it has great potential to sustain itself," the diplomat noted, adding that "to reach this goal a number of provisions need to be critically assessed."
"The EU is turning 60 next March, the upcoming anniversary leads many to analyze whether everything was done as it should have been," Chizhov went on to say. "In any case, the EU’s image as a source of universal values and universal standards in economics and other spheres has been less bright lately."
Besides that, in his words, under the current circumstances the EU needs some levers of influence "over itself" in order to "remain a unified center of political and economic influence."
