Therefore it’s a good time to share my own assessment of how far we have gone with the European integration, which is a key task set for me by the president.
The European integration has been too often regarded a hostage of the so-called “selective justice” cases. Meanwhile, a lot of work that has been done to implement Ukraine’s commitments to the European integration process has been very often just ignored by foreign or internal observers.
Just like about anything in life, the process of Ukraine’s EU integration is not pure black or white. There is progress recognized by our European partners, and there are shortcomings.
I would like to look at them in more detail.
