“Love can not be”: Pushkov commented on the aspiration of Ukraine in EU

MOSCOW, 2 Jun – RIA Novosti. Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov doubts that EU member States support the aspirations in the near future membership in the EU.

Earlier, President of Petro Poroshenko announced the imminent holding of a referendum on joining the EU and NATO. He also noted that Ukraine is “the worst has passed.”

Poroshenko is sure that the Ukrainians will support his idea of joining the EU. But there is another problem: it does not support the EU. Which is clearly more important.

“Poroshenko is sure Ukraine will support his idea of joining the EU. But there is another problem: it does not support the EU. What’s more,” the Senator wrote in his account in Twitter.

The politician also commented on the decision of the European Commission to give Ukraine a new tranche of 600 million euros for the bailout program.

“In response to the failure of the Commission to issue Kiev tranche of 600 million euros, Poroshenko initiated a referendum on EU membership. But love can not be”, — he said.

The EC refused the Ukrainian authorities in the trench in connection with the failure of a number of obligations on the part of Kiev.

In 2015, the EU approved a program of financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 1.8 billion euros. Kiev received this amount already € 1.2 billion.

Subsequently, the European Commission did not rule out approval of a new program of financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 1.8 billion euros.
