KIEV, September 22. /TASS/. Ukraine should stop capitalizing on the good impression it made on Europe after the Maidan anti-government protests and engage in real work, European Union ambassador to Ukraine Jan Tombinski told a news conference in Kiev, the capital, on Tuesday.
"Maidan added positive emotions towards Ukraine in European public opinion," he said, adding that Ukraine could not eternally benefit from this.
"The problem of refugees is more interesting than Ukraine at the moment," he said, adding that "Ukraine should not be part of the problem but part of the solution".
In earlier remarks, Ukrainian Choice Party leader Viktor Medvedchuk said Europe was losing interest in Ukraine. "A question emerges: how interesting are we at all to the West and especially to Europe with all our economic and social problems?" he asked.
"The peak of interest was a year-and-a-half ago. Now, interest has dropped and all trends demonstrate that it will keep declining," the politician said.
"All this once again proves the illusiveness of Ukraine’s aspirations towards European integration, and also shows that we will have to get out of the crisis on our own," he added.
