KYIV, Jan 22 – Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze said she believes the year 2018 is the most important year for European integration of Ukraine.
"I consider this year to be the most important year for Ukraine's European integration. Tangible victories have already been achieved. It is hardly possible to expect a new step from the EU, like a visa-free regime - it is simply not envisaged by European policy. European integration in 2018 will be 'quiet,' barely visible and incomprehensible to the general public, but not less important to the future of the country," she wrote in an article for Ukraine's Mirror Weekly published on Saturday, January 20.
