Ukraine politics is irrational and has already buried its European choice

Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainian politics is not just irrational and devoid of logic – and why the Europeans cannot understand it, cannot then stand on one or the other side, and it’s becoming even worse now – [Ukrainian politics] has been arranged generally outside the framework of traditional politics. [—] the main problem of the current Ukraine is that it has buried its European choice in front of the eyes of Europe.

            

Disproof

The EU supports Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty and sees the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as the basis for a sustainable, political solution to the conflict in the east of the country. Since spring 2014, the EU has stepped up its support for economic and political reforms in Ukraine. Ukraine is a priority partner for the European Union, also within the EU's Eastern Partnership.

On 1 September 2017, the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement came into full force, and on 1 October 2017 the additional autonomous trade measures of the EU for Ukraine entered into force.

In addition to political support, the EU has pledged a €12.8 billion support package for the next few years to support the reform process.
