“That’s not for today,” he told reporters on Friday on the prospects for the much-troubled nation’s joining the EU after Ukrainian interim acting prime minister Arseny Yatsenyuk and European leaders had signed a 21-page-long ‘political’ preamble to the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement.
“Let’s face it,” he said. “Ukraine has more serious problems to tackle […]. There is no need to rush the course of history.”
Germany’s Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, too, gave a rather evasive answer when a reporter asked her about Ukraine’s accession prospects. “We need to see how the discussion in Ukraine progresses,” she said.
