Ex-NATO General Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen criticized the statement by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on his Twitter page.

“Worrying Ukraine comments by Juncker. Pushing away those seeking a European future undermines EU power to transform neighbourhood,” Rasmussen wrote.

As it was reported earlier in his speech at the EU Ambassadors conference Juncker said: “I have seen that my friend Poroshenko said a few days ago: Ukraine is a member of the EU and NATO. At the moment it’s neither. Everyone should take that into account”.

Representative of Ukraine to the EU Mykola Tochytskyi phrased his concern over the words of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker about Ukraine, which don’t correspond to reality.

Tochytskyi addressed the European Commission for clarification of these words, drawing attention to the actual words of Ukraine’s president. During his speech at the celebration of the 26th Independence of Ukraine, Poroshenko noted the consistency of Ukraine’s strategic direction towards the EU and NATO. The allegation that the president said Ukraine is the EU and NATO member doesn’t correspond to reality.
