VILNIUS, December 15, 23:18 /ITAR-TASS/. Contradictory statements by Ukrainian leaders mislead Brussels that cannot get an idea about Kiev’s real intentions as to the future agreement with the European Union on association and free trade, the foreign minister of Lithuania which holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union told national radio on Sunday.
“President Viktor Yanukovich’s statements that the agreement is at variance with national interests of the country and those who prepared it must be brought to responsibility, raises eyebrows,” Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said.
The diplomat currently on a visit to Ukraine believes it would be illogical to work towards the signing of the document under such circumstances.
“It is difficult to understand what the Ukrainian authorities want, and we expect explanations from them,” the foreign minister said.
