"Ukraine is not ready to join the EU or NATO. Both organizations should be giving realistic hopes to Ukraine,” Sobotka told the Czech media, according to RIA Novosti.

"If the Ukrainian side sees President Petro Poroshenko’s peace settlement plan as a path to successful solution to the crisis, then it cannot accompany it with ideas of Ukraine’s membership in NATO and the EU," Sobotka said, and added:

"We cannot solve Ukraine's military and economic problems for it."

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Friday sent a bill to parliament to abolish Ukraine's status of a neutral country, and instead apply for membership in NATO.
