Strasbourg, June 21 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said that European integration is a factor that unites the country.

Yanukovych said that opposition members, pro-government politicians, and most Ukrainians supported the country's EU integration aspirations.
"Such a unifying factor is the highest value for me as president of Ukraine," he said.
