March 31 , 2006 11:27

Zbigniew Brzezinski and other experts from the U.S, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and France have gathered in Warsaw to discuss global challenges facing the European Community and Poland.
Ukraine possesses all opportunities which are necessary for the EU accession, Mr. Brzezinski told in Warsawa. Prof. Brzezinski stressed the U.S. is delighted the recent election in Ukraine. The election proved the great democratic victory born in 2004. He denied rumors stating that the U.S. is afraid of Timoshenko’s premiership.
According to his words, the USA supports orange revolution, but, concerning the PM office, the United States stress it is downright Ukraine’s domestic affair. The Euro-oriented democratic basis behind the new Cabinet is the main point for the future government.
Touching upon the winner of the election (the Party of Regions – 32.12% - ed.), Mr. Brzezinski hopes Victor Yanukovich is about to change his points of view.
As for is culture, Ukraine is the authentic European country. Now, it needs institutional reforms which will push it to the European Union, Zbigniew Brzezinski concluded.
