The stable development of Ukraine remains a priority for the European Union. It is one of the key ideas of the Global Strategy of External Policy and Security Policy - just like maintaining Africa's economic growth and preserving the nuclear deal with Iran. Federica Mogherini, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy said so during her speech at the Oxford University. The European External Action Service quoted her as saying.
"The conflict in Donbass and the illegal annexation of Crimea are still ongoing. But compared to five years ago, Ukraine is a completely different country. It is a much stronger country, thanks primarily to the Ukrainian people’s stubborn demand and work for change – anti-corruption, reforms -, but also thanks to the European Union’s contribution. In five years, we have put together the largest support package in the history of the European Union. No one has invested in Ukraine as much as we did and we have never invested anywhere else as much as we have invested in Ukraine", she said.
According to the chief EU dipomat, the EU makes the stability concept a milestone of its work, and interaction with Ukraine is the best example of its implementation.
