Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal assured the society of the invariability of the European path for Ukraine and expressed his hope that the country would receive EU membership. This was discussed during his meeting on November 21 with representatives of civil society - active participants in the revolutionary events of 1990, 2004, 2013-2014, as well as state defenders and representatives of the intellectual elite, the government portal reports.
"I have no doubt that Ukraine will become a member of the European Union. But it is no less important how we - the state and society - will walk this path, we will move towards European standards. These are daily changes, daily work that changes our lives. We abandon the Soviet rudiments in the mind, in the economy, we become more open and tolerant. We learn to take care and support each other," Shmygal said.
The head of government added that such changes in society and political culture would not have happened without the fateful events of 1990, 2004 and 2013-14.
"We have become more open to the world, and the world has become more open for Ukraine. Every day our international partners demonstrate this. We have proved to everyone that the Ukrainian people are an integral part of the European family," Prime Minister said.
As we reported earlier, Denys Shmyhal said that the government is developing a plan to introduce strict quarantine in the country.
At the same time, Shmygal stressed that there is no specific date for the introduction of a lockdown in Ukraine now.
