KIEV, December 17. /TASS/. The European Union will keep on supporting Ukraine until all points of the Minsk agreements to be implemented, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said on Wednesday.

“The EU will continue to be on the side of Ukraine and will work hard to ensure that the conflict in Donbas ends with full respect for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” she said.

Europe is also ready to contribute to carrying out reforms in Ukraine. “It’s very important to start implementing the necessary reforms,” Mogherini said.

“We can begin our work using the instruments that have emerged due to the Association Agreement and implement the reforms. We should continue our joint work just as we have ratified the Agreement. We should move forward hand in hand — Ukraine and the EU,” she said.
