Russia has created the biggest crisis in Europe since World War II, European Union Commissioner for Expansion and European Neighboring Policies Štefan Füle said at the YES summit in Kyiv on September 11th.

“Russia has created the biggest crisis in Europe since World War II,” said Mr. Füle.

According to him, Ukraine’s choice of a European future is the sovereign choice of the country.

“The EU has opportunities and the will to support the people who make revolutions for a better future,” noted the Commissioner.

He thinks that Maidan did not divide Ukraine, but united it around the pursuit to live better. “It gave a chance for growth of the country’s potential,” emphasized Mr. Füle.

As NBN reported, the annual Yalta summit is being held in Kyiv on September 11-13th, which will involve 350 representatives of political, business and social circles from over 20 countries.
