The first president of
Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk is sure that our state should stand against
interference into its national interests, he said Monday.
Kravchuk is convinced that
only NATO can provide proper protection for Ukraine.
According to him, there can
be no territorial discussions concerning Crimea. “Ukraine must stand against any interference
into its domestic affairs and should appeal to the international organizations,
including UN, to protect its territorial integrity and national interests,” he
At the same time Kravchuk
declared that Ukraine’s position of the nonaligned state
is an illusion. “Ukraine must protect its nation al
interests, independence and territorial integrity. Such protection can be
provided by the Alliance only. There are no other structures in Europe, capable to protect Ukraine,” Kravchuk is convinced.
“We must abandon illusions and
start living in the real world. Ukrainian Politicians should stop speculating
over NATO. I stand for the protection of Ukraine’s interests,” he summed up.
As a reminder, in July 11
parties, including SDPU (Kravchuk was a member of this party), and 7 public organization
signed a joint statement in which they demanded to stop forcible joining and to
maintain Ukraine’s nonaligned status.
