VILNIUS, November 29, 6:11 /ITAR-TASS/. Viktor Yanukovich has suggested that the European Union (EU) "together with Russia" begin to tackle a solution to Ukrane's economic problems, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite told journalists on Thursday night at the close of the official supper which ushere in a two-day summit of the European programme Eastern Partnership.
She said the European leaders "sought to persuade Yanukovich into agreeing to sign an Association Agreement with the EU". "Regrettably, the arguments in favour of signing the Agreement had no effect on him. By now, his attitude has not changed," Grybauskaite said.
"We again listened to his considerations. He did not speak either about signing or agreement. He spoke only of Ukraine's economic problems. He wants the problems to be tackled by the EU together with Russia," she said.
According to Grybauskaite, Eastern European member-countries that joined the EU in 2004 were particularly active in dissuading the president of Ukraine from a trilateral format of talks with Russia's participation.
The Lithuanian president said, "Over the past 15 years those countries have made considerable progress precisely due to bilateral agreements with the EU".
