Department of Information and Communication of the Secretariat of the CMU”Voting for the ratification of the Agreement with the EU is a global choice of Ukraine. We are to correct the mistake made 350 years ago. Ukraine is Europe. This was said and done by the Ukrainian people," said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Tuesday, September 16, in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, where today there is held a process of ratification of the Association Agreement with the European Union.

“The signature of the entire Ukraine is put under this Agreement, above all. It's a pity that this deal is sprinkled with blood. But this is our choice, our struggle and our pay for freedom, for democracy and independence. Now our soldiers are fighting for Ukrainian sovereignty, for Ukrainian independence and integrity of the Ukrainian state", - said the Head of Government.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed that ratification of the Agreement is the first step: "This is only the beginning of our great European journey. The efficiency and impact depends on us alone, on the political will to change, our struggle and victory".

The Head of Government emphasizes that the people have demonstrated their desire to be with Europe and live in Europe: "The responsibility of the current Verkhovna Rada, the new Parliament, the Government, the President and the entire political elite, that must be elected by the Ukrainian people, should contain the realization of the aspirations and the will of multimillion Ukrainian state as part of Europe. Now everyone expects neither signatures no victorious speeches, but concrete actions and results. So, go ahead to the implementation of the Agreement and to the victory of the democracy, freedom and Ukraine".
