KIEV, November 26, 21:49 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine should be a strong state to be treated as an equal partner, President Viktor Yanukovich said on Tuesday in an interview with Ukraine’s leading television channels.
“We should be strong to be treated as an equal partner,” he said. “I am confident that we should not be a ‘poor cousin’ with hat in hand anywhere. As long as I am the head of state, I will not let anyone humiliate Ukraine.”
He stressed that any of the state decisions, including foreign policy ones, must be guided by national interests. “What matters most are our Ukrainian interests. We have always based any decisions only on Ukraine’s national interests and I will be guided by this principle,” he pledged.
