EU to continue to help Ukraine, including in fight against corruption - Juncker
The European Union supports the policies of Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said.
When delivering a report on the situation in the EU at the European Parliament on Wednesday, Juncker said that those who doubt EU support for Ukraine are mistaken in their belief.
In his words, Brussels has offered its support to Poroshenko and will continue its assistance.
The European Commission president said that the EU has provided EUR 3.4 billion in financial assistance to Kyiv, has prepared an agreement on energy supply, and is helping to conduct judicial reform.
He said that the Revolution of Dignity last year not just about democracy and closer ties with the European Union, but it was also a protest against corruption.
Juncker said that in its fight against corruption, Ukrainians can count on the European Union's help.
