Rzeczpospolita - Poland | Monday, February 8, 2010

Improve relations with Ukraine

Despite the election victory of Viktor Yanukovych, who is widely regarded as pro-Russian, Poland should not turn its back on Ukraine, the conservative daily Rzeczpospolita writes: "We must be more active than ever regarding our Ukrainian neighbour. ... Viktor Yanukovych may be decried as a pro-Russian politician but his main attribute is pragmatism. In the end his election does not decide anything. Rather we can expect more bickering about the most important issues. So we need to put all the more effort into convincing the Ukrainians that the pro-European course is the more profitable one, that Poland continues to advocate their interests within the EU and Nato, and that we want to continue working with them - no matter who's in power in Kiev."
