Dr. Axel Kasseger – Member of the Austrian Parliament, Chairman of the Austrian-Ukrainian parliamentary group.
…In no case borders in Europe shall be changed by violent means. And it is necessary to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in eastern Ukraine within the Minsk process.
It is self-evident, that the Ukrainian people should make decisions about their fate as far as possible by their own. But, of course, the general context needs to be taken into consideration. And we must also not forget the fact that to date 70% of the foreign trade turnover of Ukraine was generated with Russia.
