In no country of Europe does not have such a strong faith in the European Union, like the Ukraine, said Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. According to him, the victory of Brexit in the UK has become a “crisis of faith” and acknowledged that a unified Europe is now experiencing not the best times.”

Poroshenko is confident that the strong faith of Ukrainians in the EU is not caused by the fact that they do not understand the shortcomings of the EU, and the fact that they perfectly understand what they face alternative.
“Wherever the European idea recedes, it leaves a vacuum that is filled with something painfully familiar in the history of Europe: national selfishness,” Poroshenko said in the article “We believe in Europe,” published in Politico.
The Ukrainian President assured that despite the war and the crisis of faith in Europe, the country will continue to go on EU integration and emphasized that Ukrainians are ready to pay any price for it, as none can become “too high”.
