The Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk urges European leaders not to be scared of Russia and enlarging of the EU to the east. The Prime Minister said in an interview with The Financial Times

He stressed that Russia is acting as an international criminal, trying to intimidate the world, trying to split the EU.

Despite the Minsk accords, he added, Russia has again massed thousands of troops close to and inside east Ukraine.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk considers development of the situation is unlikely before June 29 until the EU is to take a decision on rolling over sanctions: But the chances of a new offensive are very, very high.

On the eve of the Riga Eastern Partnership Summit the Prime Minister appealed to the EU leaders: Act boldly and wisely. Dont be scared of Russia. It is for Russia to be scared of you, of all of us.

Dont be scared of the word enlargement. The larger we are, the stronger we are, the more successful we are, and the more opportunities we get, all our nations, Arseniy Yatsenyuk accentuated.

Apart from that the Head of Government stressed the need to attract foreign investors to Ukraine.
