Pro-Russian civic movement leader Medvedchuk says EU opening its doors to neo-fascist tendencies

The pro-Russian civic group leader Viktor Medvedchuk has said that by opening its doors to present-day Ukraine the EU is opening the way for the spread of neo-fascist tendencies in Europe. Mr. Medvedchuk, who heads the civic movement Ukraine’s Choice said the Czech EU Commissioner for Enlargement Stefan Fule, who has led talks with Kiev on an association agreement with the EU, should be aware of his personal responsibility in this matter. The attack comes just hours before the Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is due to sign the political chapter of Ukraine’s association agreement with the EU.
