EU Policy regarding Ukraine will not change after Donald Trump becomes a president in the USA. About this in interview with Deutsche Welle said the EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.
"Our policy regarding Ukraine will not change, and it is determined not by Washington", she said. According to her, this applies to both Ukrainian policy as a whole, and the Russian occupation of Crimea.
At the same time Mogherini noted that the EU is working with Russia on many issues. In particular, she recalled the nuclear deal with Iran, which has been made with Russian participation. In addition, according to the head of European diplomacy, the EU is working with Russia and on the Syrian issue, despite the disagreements.
At the same time Mogherini expressed concern that the priorities of the new US administration may lead America away from some European basic principles. In this regard, she hopes that Trump will share basic European values, which, according to her, the EU has clearly identified. "We look forward to working with the United States on the basis of these values, but we need to give them (the future administration in Washington), a bit of time so that they can decide on the priorities of its foreign policy." She added.
