Such information became known from diplomatic circles, "The German wave" transfers.

According to experts of the Swedish institute of researches of the European policy, Stockholm will work over that for Ukraine doors of the European Union didn't remain shut.

According to a state program for 2009, Sweden plans to support reforms in Ukraine and to allocate (in recalculation) nearly 16,5 million euros for reduction of the Ukrainian policy to EU standards, at what not only in the sphere of development of democracy.

Mainly it is a question of environment protection, and also of gender equality and fight against AIDS.

Sweden together with Poland put forward a few years ago an initiative of the Eastern Partnership which Stockholm, having become at the head of EU in July of this year, will effectively try to embody.

As without external support the speed of reforms in Ukraine will be extremely small, is spoken in an analytical note of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Sweden.

It is known that the Ukrainian parliamentarians and officials criticize EU initiative "Eastern Partnership". In Kiev don't see a difference between policy of the neighbourhood and the new project. Neither there, nor there - any word about prospect of membership of Ukraine in EU.

As the head of parliamentary committee of eurointegration questions Boris Tarasyuk speaks, after the approval of the project it became clear that EU declares the same principles and cooperation approaches by which the European Union and Ukraine work some years.

It criticizes lack of accurate prospect of the membership, limited financing and hopelessness of cancellation of a visa regime between EU and the countries which take part in "Eastern Partnership".

"What difference of figures. For the Eastern Partnership it is allocated 600 million euros for 6-ти the countries on 4-ри years. And Turkey only for 2009 - as much. And if EU doesn't reconsider approach of financing of the project, it remains ideological, instead of practical", - Tarasyuk speaks.

Deepening of the relations of the European Union with Ukraine will be one of priorities of Sweden for presidency in EU.
