“We are confidently moving toward our goal of building a modern European state. But it is an extremely difficult process. We are looking for our road into the community of developed states, but integration achieved at any cost, at the expense of losing independence, having to make economic or territorial concessions and allowing someone else to interfere in our internal affairs is not the path we will ever agree to follow,” he said at an Independence Day ceremony in Kyiv on Friday. 

Freedom and independence are the main components of Ukraine’s prosperity, Yanukovych said.

“Like a free person, a free state can make mistakes and suffer defeats. But it always has a chance to win in the future,” he said.
