This resolution contains a special paragraph that dedicated to this plan, which is called the 'European Plan for Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia'. We hope that during the summit there will be a lot of talk and we will approach the real decisions of the EU on how to bring this plan to life," he said on the air of the 112.Ukraine TV Channel on November 6.
