Ukraine: Europäisches Parlament fordert runden Tisch Krise zu lösen




viktorYanukovychSombre_largeThe European Parliament today (12 December) adopted a resolution on the situation in Ukraine. Commenting after the vote, Greens/EFA co-President Rebecca Harms said:”The European Parliament has today sent a clear signal to President Yanukovych (im Bild). Die Abgeordneten haben die dringende Einberufung eines Runden Tisches gefordert, an dem nicht nur Regierung und Opposition sitzen sollten, sondern auch gleichberechtigte Vertreter der Zivilgesellschaft und Studenten, die derzeit auf dem Maidan-Platz protestieren.

“The EU must do all within its power to support those in Ukraine who want a different future. The country needs a European perspective and this includes agreeing concrete measures in support of the pro-European movement, such as a further visa liberalisation.

“At the same time, EU member states should consider targeted sanctions against those responsible for the violence against the demonstrators. They should not be allowed to enter the EU and should be held to account for their actions.”

Green foreign affairs spokesperson Werner Schulz, member of the EU-Ukraine cooperation committee, added: “Only a round table can deliver concrete results for those currently demonstrating. This could lead to a referendum on Ukraine’s future but could also lead to new elections. Setting too many preconditions for these discussions would be counterproductive. A priority must be to ensure an end to violence and the release of all political prisoners. Success for the opposition and civil society in Ukraine would also be a strong signal to the suppressed civil society in Russia that violence and repression cannot stop a determined democratic movement.”
