European Union should not forget about Ukraine due to refugee crisis and fight against terrorism as well as let Russia to "continue its way", the member of European Parliament Charles Tannock from European Conservatives and Reformists Group claimed at Parliament`s plenary session on Wednesday, October 14, Unian reports.
He expressed concern that Russia wants to use its participation in the talks on Syria in order to divert attention from the situation in Ukraine.
"We in Europe should be aware of this, and not let the pressure of migration and the fight against terrorism in the Middle East to distract our attention [from Ukraine - ed.] and allow Russia to continue its way in Ukraine", - he stressed.
In his opinion, Russia wants to add the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics to the list of “frozen conflicts”.
"Mr. Putin is also trying to undermine the Ukrainian economy with projects such as Nord Stream. Due to lack of ability to force Ukraine, Putin turned to more traditional tactics of the KGB, trying to possess Ukraine by political means," Tannock suggested.
