“The Maidan showed that the path to the Customs Union is closed, it is crossed, and nobody in Ukraine – neither at the level of the government nor especially at the level of the opposition – will turn and go to the Customs Union. This possibility has just been crossed. All the talk about the Customs Union can be closed. If someone today announces integration into the Customs Union, he is either a political outcast, or, if this is an active politician, a political corpse,” he told Interfax-Ukraine on Monday.

He said that Ukraine actually “closed the subject of the turn to the Customs Union, and, in fact, shut down its Soviet, post-Soviet past.” He also said that now “the issue concerns only movement to Europe.”

“The Maidan demonstrated the final approval of the European idea in Ukraine as a national idea that unites most people,” Karasiov said.
