According to Rutte, Europe is currently challenged by issues like migration and terrorism. The Minister President noted, that Ukraine is situated outside the EU, however, it should focus on development of economy and rule of law which would contribute to “stability”.

He also added that ultimately “Ukraine will have to develop long-term relations with the Russia Federation”.

Rutte claims that Ukraine should develop close connections both with Russia and the EU.

“I’m against Russia’s belief that Ukraine must develop exclusive relations only with Russia. We don’t approve of this position.
