Yatsenyuk: nobody ever will return Ukraine to pro-Russian past

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has said that the European-oriented course of Ukraine is irreversible and the Ukrainian state will never return to the Soviet past.

“The course [of European integration] is irreversible = nobody ever will  return Ukraine to the Soviet pro-Russian past. This is an independent sovereign state, and this is the achievement of each of us,” Yatsenyuk said during the “10 minutes with the prime minister” TV program, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also called on Ukrainians “to move only forward” to the European society.

“We, Ukrainians, will never give up. We fought and will fight, we won and will win. Let God save Ukraine! May the peace of God be with those killed during Maidan [protests]! Let God protect the Ukrainian army, our state and every our family!” the prime minister added.
