You know, Mr. Prime Minister, we have a lot in common with the United Kingdom. You passed austerity and made your economy really vibrant and robust, we did the same, so we can share our experience with Greece. In order to make the world better, to keep the European Union united and to make the EU as one of the key supporters of Ukrainian territorial integrity and our independence".
