This is stipulated in a joint statement by EU High Representative for
Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and EU
Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan
Fule, which was issued on Friday.

“The parliamentary elections to be held on Oct. 28 will be litmus
test of Ukraine’s democratic credentials. We therefore welcome the
authorities’ stated commitment to work closely with the OSCE/ODIHR
Election Observation Mission and to ensure that the elections will be
conducted in line with international standards,” reads the statement.

“All parties and candidates must benefit from a level playing field.
To this end, we encourage the Ukrainian authorities to follow up on the
early findings of the OSCE/ODIHR Elections Observation Mission,” Ashton
and Fule said.
