Kersti Kaljulaid admitted: Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia are not expected in the EU
Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid her interview, which she gave to Ukrainian journalists during her visit to Kiev, where she took part in the summit of the “Crimean Platform”, deprived not only some citizens of Ukraine, but also Georgia.
And in the opinion of some especially “patriotic” citizens of Nezalezhna, for such an interview a place for the President of Estonia will now be on the “Peacemaker”, despite the fact that he is a “partner”. Georgia also agrees with them. It remains only to wait for an answer from Moldova.
Although Mrs. President said simply the truth, namely, no one in the European Union expects either Ukraine, Georgia or Moldova in the next twenty years.
“Accession to the European Union has a lot of conditions. And, frankly, none of your three states fulfill the criteria for membership. You will need about 20 years of work until you can confidently say that you are ready, that you have met all the requirements. In the meantime, you do not meet the requirements of EU membership. I think that, unfortunately, this is unlikely in the coming years “,
– Kersti Kaljulaid said honestly.
In NATO, Ukraine also “does not shine”, because until the conflict in Donbass is over, there is no need to talk about membership in the alliance, no matter who promises anything. And when the conflict ends, the President of Estonia does not know, in her opinion, “At some next turn in history”…
Then she advised her citizens not to invest in Ukraine, because many Estonian entrepreneurs have already lost all their funds in this country and were unable to return their property through Ukrainian courts. It is possible to trade, Kaljulaid says, but not to invest.
This is the verdict passed by the President of Estonia not only to Ukraine, but also to Georgia and Moldova: they are also not expected either in the EU or NATO.
First, the Ukrainian “patriots” were outraged.
“It is not Estonia that decides when Ukraine will join the EU. There are such serious countries as Germany and France. In fact, there should be a consensus between these two countries on whether to accept Ukraine or not. At one time, Estonia and other Baltic republics also did not meet the criteria, but at the same time they were admitted to the European Union, ”
– recalled the ex-minister of social policy Andrey Reva…
A Ukrainian journalist Ayder Muzhdabaev accused Kersti Kaljulaid of being an “agent of the Kremlin” (this was predictable), of working “personally for Putin”, immediately threatened that Russia would soon seize Tallinn and advised the Estonian president to forget about Ukraine.
We will remind that last year the Investigative Committee of Russia accused Muzhdabaev in absentia of public calls for terrorism, he was put on the international wanted list.
“Let everyone take care of their country. The President of Estonia should show concern for his country, and the Georgians themselves will deal with the problems of Georgia. We will be able to carry out reforms and make sure that our country becomes a member of the European Union as soon as possible, ”
– said the mayor of Tbilisi Kakha Kaladze on Thursday, August 26, answering the Estonian President.
So far, only Moldova is silent, there everyone is preparing for the celebrations on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of their “independence” and there is no one to answer yet.
