 Yatsenyuk on the Customs Union: It is Like Soviet Oligarchy Mixed With Soviet Bureaucracy

One of the Batkivschyna leaders Arseniy Yatsenyuk considers member states of the Customs Union corrupt.

This follows from his commentary channel to Inter Channel on Sunday.

"I realize now that there is no heaven on earth anywhere. But there is no line to join the Customs Union whereas there is a line to join the European Union. Thus, we need to move to the European Union, we need European standards," said Yatsenyuk .

"We do not need a corrupt government. And in EU countries they fight corruption and put people in prison for it. Unlike the member countries of the Customs Union. This is something like the Soviet oligarchy mixed with the Soviet bureaucracy," said the deputy.

He also expressed the view that the release of Yulia Tymoshenko and Yuriy Lutsenko "is the premise which would remove any questions to the integration of Ukraine into the European Union."
