The outgoing president noted that Ukraine is “light-years away” from fulfilling the Copenhagen criteria necessary for joining the EU. In the comments under the post of the publication on Facebook, Ukrainian readers were outraged after Kaljulaid’s words.

Some creature tapped something about “light years”, but in her country everything was bought tightly by Russia. Let him be silent in a rag, – wrote one of them.

Others also believe that the Estonian president got excited: “Therefore, she was not re-elected, perhaps, she’s clogging up a place in Russia, and they are conducting the same propaganda, the EU includes 28 countries, so it’s not for her to decide”, “It is not appropriate for the president of an entire country to behave “,” This person does not decide anything at all, not only in international politics, but even in his own country “,” Everyone has their own way, and we do not need to listen to another croak. “

Earlier it became known that Ukraine is at a distance of “several light years” from the moment when it will be admitted to the EU, said Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid. The head of the Baltic country, according to her, has not seen progress in five years that would bring Ukraine closer to joining the EU. Kaljulaid also noted the problems faced by Estonian business.
