President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the proposals to consolidate the Euro-Atlantic aspirations of Ukraine in the Constitution is a signal to society about the intentions to say goodbye to Russia and also signal to Western partners about the commitment to join the EU and NATO. About this Poroshenko said during the YES forum, which was broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”.
“We, Ukrainians, destroying the barriers in his time was erected the “Empire”, the iron curtain between us and our European neighbours. The summit Ukraine – NATO confirmed a Euro-Atlantic perspective of a large European country, and the initiative to fix the course for NATO in the Constitution is not only a signal to society about the commitment, it is not only the intention to once again wave a hand to the Moscow – “good-bye, our tender Misha, go back to your fairy forest”, – said Poroshenko.
Poroshenko concluded that amendments to the Constitution mean that Ukraine will join the EU and NATO.
“This is a message to our Western partners: “If you (Alliance – ed.) repeatedly told us that the door is open, do not hesitate, we are sure they stop,” he said.
As reported, the draft law Poroshenko on the Euro-Atlantic intentions was registered in Parliament on Monday, September 3. The text is published on the Council website.
