Petro Poroshenko noted that nobody had paid such a high price for the European and Euro-Atlantic choice as Ukraine did. “Nobody has ever paid such great sacrifices for this choice. And we must always remember the irredeemable debt to our heroes. And this debt prompts us to do everything for their struggle not to be useless, so that nobody and nothing can bring us back to the chains of Moscow,” he stressed.
“Before joining the EU and the North Atlantic Alliance, we still have – and we all clearly understand that – to cover a long path: overcome poverty, meet membership criteria, make our difficult homework. But I emphasize that today we have achieved an unprecedented rapprochement with Europe in our history,” the President of Ukraine said.
