EU-Ukraine Association Agreement has anti-Russian nature and the people of the Netherlands were tricked by their own leaders. Speaker of the Russian Foreign Minister Maria Zakharova commented on the ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement by the Netherlands, reports the press service of the diplomatic organization.
"However, all this leads to a sad conclusion: in fact, the Dutch people, who said "no" to the association with Ukraine, were tricked by their own leaders, who once again embraced openly the Russophobic propaganda, which, be the way, is a direct confirmation of the anti-Russian nature of the Agreement on the Ukraine-EU Association, no matter how much we are assured of the opposite," Zakharova said.
According to her, Dutch politicians used controversial methods to achieve such results.
"It is quite predictable that at the recent debates everything was again reduced to unproven statements about Moscow's provocative actions, calls for pan-European solidarity in the face of the mythical "Russian threat", etc.," the Russian Foreign Ministry Speaker noted.
Earlier it was reported that Dutch Parliament ratified EU-Ukraine Association. The Dutch senate approved ratification of the EU-Ukraine association agreement.
