Countries that want to join the EU, it is Not necessary to consider the Union as a source to replenish the country's budget, said a member of the European Commission on issues of enlargement and neighbourhood policy Johannes Hahn in conversation with the German edition.
One of the hottest topics now in the EU is the issue of refugees. The Commissioner believes that currently there is no great danger of the emergence in the EU of immigrants from Ukraine." About 1, 3 million Ukrainians had to leave their homes in the East of the country. It is important to emphasize that these internal refugees find jobs and integrate in a new place. It is also one of the reasons that we supported the Ukrainian economy ", - explained the situation to the German politician.
currently, the EU conducts dialogues on the accession of Turkey and some Western Balkan countries. Repeatedly stated his desire to join the EU and the government of Ukraine, but due to economic issues and the fall of refugees the dialogue even with the most promising candidates, the number of which Ukraine is Not a member, have the opportunity to be delayed. Another important problem in this way is that Not all candidates understand the organization and view it only from a financial point of view, says Khan.
"the majority think the EU Is a cash machine where you just have to enter the correct code in order to get something. But It is Not so ", - noted the member of the European Commission on issues of enlargement and neighbourhood policy.
