Fule: Kyiv should resolve problems with Tymoshenko to sign Association Agreement
The EU commissioner noted that the European Commission and the EU member states "have clearly declared several times that the detention of former premier for political responsibility, and not a crime, under two articles of the Criminal Code of 1960s, is not a correct way to treat opponents."
Fule confirmed that Brussels is awaiting the EU-Ukraine summit scheduled for Dec. 19. According to him, one of the main issues on the agenda is the issue of the Association Agreement.
"Over recent months and weeks we have managed to settle the remaining problems connected with the economic part – the free trade area – and the Association Agreement. There remains one more issue, which has to be considered by the Ukrainian delegation and the EU countries – Ukraine's European prospects. This discussion is not in a vacuum: the European Commission, as well as the member states, are watching the situation in Ukraine," the EU Commissioner said.
