Ukraine's geopolitical importance growing every day - Maasikas

The geopolitical importance of Ukraine has been growing every day since the Revolution of Dignity, Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Matti Maasikas has said.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, he said this at the 4th Association Exchange Forum in Kyiv on Thursday, October 21.

"Ukraine's geographical location has not changed. But Ukraine's geopolitical position has been changing every day since the Revolution of Dignity, when you finally made your clear choice to return from the East to the West," he said.

According to Maasikas, this was the biggest "geopolitical shift" in Europe, and the EU had all the reason to support that.

In his speech at the forum, Maasikas also praised the format of the Association Trio launched by Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova to strengthen their cooperation with the EU. According to him, the European Union recognizes that these three partner countries in the Eastern Partnership have "higher ambitions and aspirations" and that the format of cooperation they initiated will only benefit the EU and the region.
