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.
Like the Eastern Europe, Ukraine cannot exist normally without Russia. And because of the strategic choice has been made without Russia, it will not be dying quietly, like the Baltic states [are dying]. It is too big for this.
And the resources of Europe are not enough for Ukraine. Therefore, Ukraine – when it made a strategic choice without Russia – it will die. It will be dying messy and untidy.
Despite the fact that some experts call Baltic countries “Baltic Turtles”, the economies of these states are growing up these years as well as the GDPs of Poland and Czech Republic.
The EU has pledged a €12.8 billion support package for the next few years to support the reform process in Ukraine.
