The head of division for international Affairs of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev considers that the European Union would be much more profitable to give visa-free regime is not Ukraine, and Russia. The reluctance to provide benefits for Ukrainians, the European officials cover like a possible "reaction" of the Russian Federation.
"The irony is that the European Union would be much more profitable to give visa-free regime is not Ukraine, and Russia, as Russian citizens traveling to the European Union with money, and not for the money, to spend, enriching the local tourism industry, not to earn, increasing pressure on local labor markets ", - Kosachev wrote on the last working day of the week in his blog on the Internet office of SF.
according to his vision, Brussels for only political motives have today to give unrealistic promises small countries and to compensate its tourist industry, the decrease in the flow of Russian citizens." apparently, not just in Ukraine, But also in the European Union some people have learned to blame their problems on the Russian Federation. It is Clear that the main reason why so pull with visa-free regime for the same Ukraine - fear of the inevitable flow of migrants from this crisis-ridden country, rather than the fears on the issue of some nervous Russian reaction, " - said Kosachev.
Russia, according to his statement, purely wishes what he's talking about. For this reason, in 2008, was offered for public discussion the draft Treaty on European security, for this reason, it is proposed to discuss the Ukrainian gas transit, and after, and the consequences of the European Association of Ukraine in the trilateral format." But in reply we heard some disclaimers: this is our thing, and you say, imperialists, " he says.
explaining the message of the Ukrainian side about the necessity of immediate and effective EU mission in Ukraine, which will take upon his own shoulders the responsibility for the situation, Kosachev called it " the ultimate stage of de-sovereignization of the country." In this case, it is given for free and national choice." instead of destroyed monuments to Lenin in Ukraine it is necessary to erect monuments Orwell ", - said the Senator.
