“Ukraine, as it is now, will not join the EU in a year, in two years or even five,” the Minister stated.
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.
As it was reported, the Verkhovna Rada supported the amendments to the Constitution, concerning Ukraine’s EU and NATO aspirations.
