Ukraine will take advantage of the pause in the relations with the EU to build Europe within the country, President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych said Tuesday at a plenary session of the world economic forum "European integration future", being held in Istanbul.

"Expansion is a perspective. And we want both Euopea and Ukraine to have this perspective. We will use the pause to build Europe within the country," he said.

Yanukovych assured that Ukrainians understand that European integration is not a simple membership in an elite club, but a commitment. "Firs of all it is a homework and we understand that a great deal depends on Ukraine," Yanukovych said.

Speaking about Ukraine's intention to build Europe within the country, Yanukovych pointed out that the matter concerns the improvement of Ukraine's financial attractiveness.

"We clearly understand that only innovative investment model of Ukraine's development will brings us an opportunity to increase the economy level and consequently to improve people's lives, reducing the gap between the rich and the poor," the President declared.
