The first President of independent Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk doubts that the authorities want to integrate Ukraine into the European Union.

"I think it does not implement EU conditions because it is reluctant to move towards Europe. If we wanted to Europe, as we want to be rich and happy, we would do it very quickly," Kravchuk said in interview, when asked why the authorities do not implement the conditions of the EU to sign the Association Agreement.

The ex-president said that if Ukraine does not sign the document at the summit of "Eastern Partnership" in November, it will be a serious mistake.

"If we implement the commitments as fast as do now, then, unfortunately, we won’t sign the Association Agreement in November. It will be a historic mistake," Kravchuk said.
