MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed a strong disagreement with the claims that Russia opposes Ukraine’s integration with the EU.
Kiev has every right to join the EU, Putin said.
“We would be strongly opposed if Ukraine were joining NATO, not EU, now,” he said.
Putin also made known Moscow’s readiness to discuss the problems of Ukraine’s integration with the EU both with Ukrainian government officials and with the central European agencies in Brussels, but he made a reservation these discussions could take place only after the endorsement of a final decision.
