KIEV, December 21 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine will eventually sign an agreement of association with the European Union, but on more favourable terms than those it has been proposed so far, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said in on television Friday evening.
“Ukraine will certainly sign the EU association agreement, but on better terms for itself,” he said. “We have taken a pause on the way to the euro association. We made this decision when it became absolutely clear that after the signing of this agreement we shall plunge in a crisis. We have no option left other than finding new ways of supporting Ukraine.”
Azarov added that Ukrainian society was offered “clear explanations of the authorities’ actions.” He said in case of an agreement of association with the European Union Ukraine would see an imminent and early crisis.
“In 2014 we shall get stronger and sign the agreement with the EU,” Azarov said.
