Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine is moving along a ‘wide highway to Europe’. He is quoted as saying this during the events dedicated to Independence Day of the country.

“And we have one road – a wide Euro-Atlantic autobahn that leads to membership in the EU and membership in NATO” -said Poroshenko. 

According to him, the association agreement with the EU is convincing evidence of a “break with the empire” – the one that Reagan called the “evil empire.”

“I hope that James Mattis, US Secretary of Defense, here will confirm the correctness of the quotation.” – added the Ukrainian president.
