High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said at the Ukraine Reform Conference in Copenhagen on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"I want to commend the Prime Minister and his government for the work that has already been done. Today, the European Union and Ukraine are closer than ever. Since 2014, the EU has invested in Ukraine more than in any other country in the world. We have offered the largest package of assistance in our history – over EUR 13 billion," the High Representative of the EU said.
At the same time, she noted that Ukraine should continue reforms.
"The challenges are great because of the conflict in the east and the illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia," Mogherini said, noting that the EU strongly supports the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
"Borders cannot be changed by military force," the High Representative added.
