According to the political analyst Paul Nuss, who is also the Chairman of the Civic Committee for National Salvation, Russia would exert strong pressure on Ukraine at the Summit in Vilnius and will not allow signing the Association Agreement with the EU "without a fight". At the time of signing the Russian side will do its utmost to destabilize Ukraine by creating an artificial crisis in the country.
"The day of the Summit will not only be decisive for Ukraine, but also very stressful. Russia may try to use the dirtiest technologies against the management of Ukraine in destabilizing its political system. In particular, the dissemination of discredit on Ukrainian politicians, according to the Kremlin, should lead to a breakdown in the signing of an agreement between the EU and Ukraine", - noted Paul Nuss.
