KIEV, March 20. /TASS/. Further internal reforms Ukraine needs to undertake heading for EU membership will only deepen existing political, economic and social problems in the country, says Viktor Medvedchuk, Kiev’s special envoy for humanitarian issues and leader of Ukrainian Choice public organization.
In an article published on Friday on Ukrainian Choice's website, Medvedchuk said: "The European Union and Ukraine have agreed on an updated agenda for association. Kiev has now moved on to a new ‘strengthened’ level of association in bilateral relations. It's frightening to even think of how this will turn out for Ukraine’s ordinary citizens."
The first stage of European integration hysteria, called Euro-reforms, has already led to higher prices and tariffs, layoffs and downsizing, and frozen wages and pensions, Medvedchuk noted.
"There is no doubt that ‘strengthening, deepening and expanding’ Euro-reforms further will only aggravate political, economic and social problems in the country," he said.
