Rasmussen slams Juncker's statement on Ukraine

Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has criticized a recent statement by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker about Ukraine.

"Worrying Ukraine comments by Juncker yesterday. Pushing away those seeking a European future undermines EU power to transform neighborhood," Rasmussen tweeted on Thursday.

In his opinion, Juncker "could have recognized that Ukraine's security is critical to EU security & the conflict on the EU's doorstep affects us all."
