VILNIUS, November 29. /ITAR-TASS/. European leaders offered a package of financial aid to Ukraine at the summit of the EU’s ‘Eastern Partnership’ format, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said Friday at a news conference at the end of the third summit of the format.
“Talks were conducted until the very last moment and, what is more, concrete steps were made to set up a system of support for Ukraine,” he said. “Even yesterday we still had the hopes that the dialogue would produce a result in the form of a package of aid.”
He alleged that Ukraine had initially been interested in signing the agreement on association with the EU but it did not venture to do this in the final count.
Komorowski gave the assurances that Poland would continue building up a rapport between Ukraine and the EU.
