MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities, which are declaring their “European choice” for the country are repeating mistakes of former President of that country Viktor Yanukovich, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily.
Abstracts from the interview to come put in the Monday issue of the newspaper were posted on its website on Sunday.
“Speakinf about the “European choice” and possible joining the European Union in the next few years, the Ukrainian leader may be repeating Yanukovich’s mistake,” the Russian prime minister noted. “With the only difference that having realized his error, Yanukovich found courage to try to suspend this process.”
“The current leaders however are trying not to focus attention of their nation on “details.” They are silent about the fact that Ukraine does have all the standard liabilities of a candidate for the European Union membership whereas it has no candidate status,” Medvedev stressed.
