MOSCOW, May 29. /TASS/. The West is growing ever more irritated at Ukraine as Kiev’s demands for money and assistance are becoming more insistent, Russian Permanent Representative at the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Friday.
"The farther we move, the less predictable Kiev behaves in the economic sphere, moving over from asking for money and assistance to demanding what it thinks was given short to it for allegedly being a body armour of European values," he told the Rossiya-24 television channel. "It is beginning to irritate not only the Normandy Four nations but the European Union in general."
He said the latest EU-Ukraine summit had been quite indicative in this respect. "The money Kiev received was nothing to speak of," Chizhov added.
