According to him, Ukraine’s membership in the EU or NATO is 'the question of a mid-term perspective'.

“If someone tells you we will join in a year or two, do not trust them, it would be a lie; but if someone tells you that this will take 30 years, do not believe them either. Experience shows different things,” he added.
