Donbas is gradually becoming a European region that can be a real engine for change in Ukraine. European Union spokesman in Ukraine David Stulik expressed such an opinion, "Interfax-Ukraine" reports.
"Mr. Ambassador and my colleagues are going to Donbas frequently, because we believe that Lugansk and Donetsk regions can become the engine of change in Ukraine. Donbas is really changing and becomes the European region now. We wished the other Ukraine regions could be like that”, he said during "Donbas Media Forum "on Friday in Mariupol.
At the same time, he stressed that the EU Delegation has made every effort to ensure that "Donbas became like West Berlin in a way, which will show the world how to live with dignity, and that the path we have chosen in this part of Ukraine, is the right one”.
Stulik also noted that the EU has prepared a program of restoration of the Donbas region designed for several million dollars, which will be financed by the European taxpayers.
