Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, gave an interview with Europe Online-Magazine. “Ukraine surely won’t be able to become an EU member for the next 20-25 years; the same concerns NATO membership”, the official said.

According to him, some voters in the Netherlands treated the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement as if Ukraine made the first step to EU membership, which was wrong.

The European Commission is about to submit the proposal on the visa free regime for Ukraine after the referendum in the Netherlands. The Dutch Electoral Committee assigned the nation-wide referendum on April 6. During it, the voters will be offered to support the idea of ratification of the Agreement by the Dutch Parliament.
