The Ukrainian crisis is all the fault of the European Union, the leader of France’s National Front party Marine Le Pen told Le Monde newspaper.

MOSCOW, September 6 (RIA Novosti) – The Ukrainian crisis is all the fault of the European Union, the leader of France’s National Front party Marine Le Pen told Le Monde newspaper.

Le Pen told the paper, that EU leaders’ negotiation of a trade deal with Ukraine forced the country to choose between Europe and Russia.

National Front’s leader also said she has admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, as he suggests a patriotic economic model, unlike what the United States imposes on Europe.

The Ukraine–EU Association Agreement is the treaty between the two countries, that presupposes political and economic association between the parties.

Russia has repeatedly expressed deep concern over Ukraine’s signing of the agreement with the EU, saying it would be forced to protect its market once it faces an uncontrolled flow of duty-free goods from the EU.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in August he would submit the draft Association Agreement to parliament to be ratified in mid-September, ahead of the parliamentary elections in the country scheduled for October 26.
