Ukraine has to demonstrate progress in implementing reforms and fighting corruption, - Rasmussen
Former NATO Secretary General speaks about his goals on the post of Poroshenko's advisor
For Ukraine will be easier to convince the European Union to extend sanctions against Russia if Kyiv will demonstrate progress in implementing reforms and fighting corruption. Such an opinion was expressed by former NATO Secretary General, and now a freelance advisor to Poroshenko Anders Fogh Rasmussen to Reuters.
Rasmussen noted that the extension of the sanctions is the only way to put pressure on Russia in the settlement of the conflict in Donbass.
"From the representatives of the Western countries, I know that their willingness to extend the sanctions is also linked to Ukraine's willingness to actually carry out complex reforms", - said Rasmussen.
