Head of NATO Outreach Countries Section Michel Duray said this at a Thursday press conference.
He said the Ukrainian situation had changed considerably over the past seven years. For instance, Ukraine has information about the alliance it lacked seven to eight years ago. Security debates are held in various regions of Ukraine, and Ukrainians show interest in them, he said.
Despite the financial crisis, it is necessary to continue the information campaign, the official said. In his opinion, the campaign is not very expensive and its main goal is to achieve consensus amongst politicians.
It is also important to supply the Ukrainian public with enough information for holding a referendum, he said, adding that the referendum results would depend on the information quality.
Meanwhile, head of the Ukrainian Government Secretariat's Coordinating Bureau for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Vadym Triukhan said that it was possible to continue the information campaign even on the eve of the presidential elections. A number of related seminars for civil servants were planned in various Ukrainian regions, he said.
Triukhan also said they had not started an extensive information campaign for the public. "Positive results can be achieved with multifaceted efforts of the government. We are optimistic," he said.
