The member of the British parliament, the former minister of Europe Denis Mksheyn considers that Europe has to consider Ukraine as the European state and not to turn to it a back.
About it it is spoken in its article published on Monday in the Newsweek edition.
"Now, as parents of the disobedient child who doesn't want to grow, world democrats turn to Ukraine a back... In the schedule of tour of the U.S. President Barack Obama of Ukraine isn't present. Silvio Berlusconi openly supports Russia each time during the gas conflict", - Mksheyn writes.
"Angela Merkel who often came to Ukraine and carried out the annual summits Berlin - Kiev, ignores now this country", - he adds.
Mksheyn recognizes that Ukraine faced many internal problems.
There was the only hope that Europe actually meant about what I spoke. Then mnoy Europeans declared that Ukraine is on a way to the European future, he notes.
"But the West was frightened after the Russian invasion into Georgia and listened to the Russian opinion that to let in Ukraine NATO - means to have problems", - he noted.
Undoubtedly, Russia is more important, in particular, and for the solution of global problems, is emphasized in article, however it doesn't mean that it is necessary to turn simply a back to Ukraine and silently to recognize it in a sphere of influence of the Kremlin.
It is rather opposite: it is necessary to use policy of "the soft force" and to consider Ukraine as the European state, Mksheyn emphasizes.
