BRUSSELS, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union seeks to increase the level of relationship with Russia, Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen said before the second day of the EU summit’s work.

Russia is a very important partner for the European Union, Katainen said.

It is clear that relations are not so good as they could be, the Finnish premier said, adding that it was necessary to do everything possible to bring relations to a higher level.

Commenting on the situation in Ukraine, he said the European Union’s position remained unchanged: there was the Association Agreement and when Kiev was ready it would sign it.

Replying to a question if the European Union is ready to provide financial support to Ukraine, Katainen responded negatively.

The government of any country is responsible for its economic situation, he added.
