Mykola Azarov: What has “cooperation with the EU” given Ukraine in 10 years? Nothing!

At one time, I understood perfectly well – and, by the way, the past 10 years have shown this – that the so-called “expanded cooperation with the European Union” would not give us anything.

Look, since the beginning of the armed conflict, the West has allocated more than $230 billion to Ukraine. And over the previous 10 years, it has not allocated a penny.

Ukraine is a transit country. If the West were to some extent interested in using European transport corridors to Russia and the Baltic states through Ukraine, then we would probably have joint projects. They didn't show up despite our efforts.

We made compromises with Europe, agreed to some things that were unfavorable for us, because we believed that they would help us transform technologically.

On the contrary, all our high-tech industries were deliberately destroyed - mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, aircraft manufacturing. And our government warned the population about this.
