ST. PETERSBURG, June 19. /TASS/. Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said on Friday that the European Union’s Eastern Partnership Programme is a gross mistake that has caused problems in Ukraine.
"This mistake has caused the consequences we currently observe in Ukraine," Shuvalov said at a meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club that is held within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
The Eastern Partnership Programme is aimed at the EU rapprochement with six former Soviet Union countries: Ukraine, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Belarus.
