"After the ratification of the Agreement, the Ukrainian side will
start implementation of every item the Agreement contains. We'll bring the
entire Ukrainian legislation in compliance with the EU standards", - said
the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk during the Eleventh annual
meeting of Yalta European Strategy (YES) "New Ukraine, New Europe, New
World: Building and Defending" in Kyiv on Saturday, September 13.
He stressed that the Government is willing to take a resolution with the action
plan on implementation of the Agreement: "We won't wait."
Answering the journalists' questions, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, emphasized:
"The Agreement will be ratified. It will take effect. The Government, from
the first day after the Agreement comes in force, shall implement this
Agreement. None will wait".
According to him, the European Union has done what they did six months
ago:" The European Union’s market is open for Ukraine. In this way they
supported the Ukrainian economy".
"Russia wanted to change the text of the Agreement, not to give a
chance for Ukraine to ratify it and to force the EU to refuse the Deal. It has
failed," said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
"Now it depends on Ukraine - after the ratification of the Agreement
whether we implement and stick to each point. We are ready to do it", -
stressed the Head of Government.
It should be noted, on September 11, following the meeting with President
of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, Arseniy Yatsenyuk declared that the
Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union will be
simultaneously ratified by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the European
Parliament on September16.
