"We will insist that the Ukrainian issue be addressed in the near future, before the summer break. Of course, there will be attempts of various groups to get a boat shattered again, but this only means that we and our colleagues in Parliament need to work more actively with the EU member states, various groups, movements, parties, in order to avoid the delay," Klympush-Tsintsadze said in an interview with Ukrainian weekly Novoye Vremia.

Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration said Ukraine still can rely on support of Western partners, despite them experiencing fatigue over the Ukrainian issue.
