There is no other option than to build a society of European standards in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said in his address to the Ukrainian people, ForUm learned from the press service of the head of state.

"In the near future I will have a broad TV interview and answer all the questions. But today I would like to emphasize that there is no other option than to build a society of European standards in Ukraine," he noted.

The President stressed that his policy had always been and would remain consistent in this context. "The reforms we implement prove that we are moving the European way. We are building the state in which the human rights, equality before the law, the freedom of choice, social protection are the highest values for everyone, no matter in what region you live or at what square you go. And as President, I would like to assure the citizens of Ukraine - I will develop and strengthen these undeniable foundations of our lives," the head of state stated.

"Nobody will steal our dream about Ukraine of equal opportunities, the European Ukraine. Nobody will get us away from the righteous way to this dream. We have overcome a lot and there is still much to be overcome. Economic problems have always been, are and will always be the most difficult issue on this way. But I would have been dishonest and unfair if I hadn't taken care of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable who are the first to suffer from the burden of the transition period. To put it mildly, I would have been wrong if I hadn't done everything necessary for people not to loose their jobs, receive salaries, pensions and scholarships," he noted.

Yanukovych also thanked all Ukrainians for high civic consciousness. "In the TV interview, I will tell in details about our joint steps and actions. I hope for understanding and support. I believe that we will overcome all the difficulties on the way of state development because there are no such obstacles that a wise and united nation couldn't overcome. We should never let anyone disturb us. The prayers and dreams of millions rely on the Lord's decision," the President summed up.
