The more “skillful dodger”

Jacek Saryusz-Wolski MEP is an author of quite an original concept on Ukraine: President Yanukovych has been deceiving us since the very beginning and he did not want to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union even for a while. All the talks, negotiations and treaties were merely a means to raise the value in relations with Russia. And this is how we are getting closer to the end of this elaborate plot- which will be the summit in Vilnius.
The above reasoning assumes that the combined EU forces have let Ukraine easily outplay it, and for this reason alone the Ukrainians deserve appreciation and respect. There is a “but” though. If the European Union wants to show itself as a more skillful dodger, then it should sign the agreement unconditionally and immediately.
