President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko considers EU initiative of “Eastern partnership” as an important, but auxiliary instrument which will assist successful implementation of a reform of the European standard and thus “will form favourable conditions for quicken integration of Ukraine to the European Union and also deepening of regional cooperation on the basis of principles and standards of the European Union”. As the President’s press office reports, President’s press secretary Iryna Vannikova stated this at a briefing, announcing the working visit of the President to Prague where he will take part in the EU Summit “Eastern partnership”. 

“The Ukraine’s position in the question on the “Eastern partnership” remains the same. We welcome and we are ready to support elements of this initiative thus much, as it will favour the achievement of Ukraine’s integration to the European Union. But this initiative must not substitute the prospective of Ukraine’s membership in the EU,” Vannikova noted.
