PARIS, August 29. /ITAR-TASS/. World Trade Organization (WTO) former director-general Pascal Lamy on Friday called for reforming Ukraine.
“Ukraine has to be reformed. Today Ukraine is not a state,” Lamy said. “One can talk about this country with the same result as about Congo or Somalia. These states are corrupt and disengaged,” he said.
“Ukraine is in Europe, on the one hand, and in the Russian world, on the other hand. This is conditioned by historical reasons. I believe that a balance should be found,” Lamy said. He called for “finding a certain status for Ukraine for the nearest 10-15 years”.
Relations between Russia and the West can be settled through the resolution of the Ukrainian conflict, Lamy said, adding that the West’s sanctions against Russia were inefficient.
