The Cabinet of Ministers should strengthen awareness of the citizens of Ukraine of the European Union. Such opinion was expressed by acting director of the European Union department of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Volodymyr Bachinsky during the international conference "Free Trade Area between Ukraine and the EU: Challenges and Opportunities".

"The Government has adopted a relevant concept of informing the public on European integration for the period up to 2017. A week ago, the government approved an action plan on the subject. I want to note that we are working closely with the EU representatives, who understand the importance of this issue," Bachinsky said.

He noted that so far insufficient number of Ukrainian citizens supports European integration.
"As recent polls show, European integration enjoys support of about 50 % of citizens. In our opinion, this is not enough," the representative of the department said.
At the same time, he said that studies show that 77 % of Ukrainian citizens have never traveled abroad.
