A number of Ukrainian oligarchs had initially planned to seize power in the country, And With this purpose in that they control the media in 2013, has been actively advocating the signing of the Treaty on unification of Ukraine With the EU, says the former head of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Ukraine Vitaliy Zakharchenko.
Exactly two years earlier, on 21 November 2013 in Ukraine were initiated demonstrations of disagreement against the decision of the authorities to stop for some time preparations for the signing of the agreement With the EU. The rallies, which started as a peaceful event sanctioned, resulted in armed confrontation between radicals And police officers, And in February 2014 led to the coup in the country.
Zakharchenko stressed That From the beginning the rally in Kiev was devoted to the students ' disagreement With the decision of the authorities refusal to sign the Treaty." in reality, It was not the refusal to sign the Treaty, And the deferral. The head And the government was taking a break until spring of 2014 in order to once again weigh the risks of such a decision. And risks - because, embarking on a path of associated membership With the EU, we would lose the market of the Russian Federation, 40% of our foreign trade. The same amount we sold their products And With the EU. I had to weigh everything. Here And decided to postpone this decision ", - said the ex-interior Minister in a conversation Last news .
However, in his vision, residents were interested, the most important thing in a visa-free regime With the EU." But students are worried not That they believed That Association With the EU will give them visa-free visit to Europe - It is possible to study, work And relax in European countries, " he said.
review wise, This was only propaganda from interested parties." Today, under the current government, Ukraine became an associated member of the EU, But did not have a visa-free regime With the EU. That is, at the time mentioned on the outcome of the skillful propaganda of the media who were in complete subordination And dependence on the oligarchs. Today it became clear That some oligarchs had decided to seize power in the country. To this end they were first taught my students the idea of visa-free visits to EU if Ukraine will become an associate member of this Union, And after, when the country's leadership, it was decided for postponement of signing the contract, they had organized a revolt that ended with the coup, " said he.
"As to the desire of students to have visa-free travel to the EU's. And most likely, will not in the near future. It was just a forgery of concepts, which, as I said, done the oligarchic clans, who came in the end to the coup government in Ukraine And are ruling the country Today. But on the Maidan, no one goes, " finished the former head of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Ukraine.
