EU may put off Ukraine due to Brexit, - experts

UK referendum steals the show

16:30, 24 June 2016


According to UNIAN, the experts told this during a press conference in Kyiv commenting the results of UK referendum and British exit from the EU.

The expert on international issues of the Institute of World Policy Dariya Gaidai assumed that EU will fix its attention on UK relations.

"It is most likely that EU will put off the relations with Ukraine and concentrate its attention on Great Britain. It's a chance for Ukraine to show that it is not the problem, can support the EU and offer the decision on different issues, including the events in Ukraine itself. In a nutshell, it's high time for Ukraine to show that it can be a reliable EU partner", Gaidai said.

She thinks that "the EU leaders will be engaged in Brexit, so the Ukraine issue may pale into insignificance".

"It will be harder for Ukraine to return EU's attention and to defend its interests", Gaidai featured.
