President: 'Nobody will steal our dream about European Ukraine'

  • Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych

KYIV, November 26 /Ukrinform/. There is no other option than to build a society of European standards in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said in his address to the Ukrainian people.

"Today I would like to emphasize that there is no other option than to build a society of European standards in Ukraine. My policy has always been and will remain consistent in this context. The reforms we implement prove that we are moving the European way," he said.

Yanukovych said that the Ukrainian people "are building the state in which the human rights, equality before the law, the freedom of choice, social protection are the highest values for everyone, no matter in what region you live or at what square you go."

"As president, I would like to assure the citizens of Ukraine - I will develop and strengthen these undeniable foundations of our lives. Nobody will steal our dream about Ukraine of equal opportunities, the European Ukraine. Nobody will get us away from the righteous way to this dream," he said.

Yanukovych said that economic problems had always been, are and would always be the most difficult issue on this way.

"But I would have been dishonest and unfair if I hadn't taken care of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable who are the first to suffer from the burden of the transition period. To put it mildly, I would have been wrong if I hadn't done everything necessary for people not to lose their jobs, receive salaries, pensions and scholarships," he said.
