"Our delegation in Kyiv will demand that Kommersant (the Kommersant-Ukraine newspaper) publish truthful information. This article contains the information that is incorrect in many respects. We also intend to publish a transcript of an interview of the head of our delegation. With regard to the EU funds, it is not true that these funds were misappropriated, as it was alleged in the article," Stano said in Brussels on Wednesday.
Stano said that the European Commission had not postponed, frozen or stopped the provision of technical assistance to Ukraine.
"Some individual assistance is currently being reviewed in connection with the need for Ukraine to fulfill certain conditions, in particular, issues related to financial management and macroeconomic stability. But the main assistance is continuing. We, as the European Commission, are planning to resume the allocation of assistance as soon as possible. What was written in Kommersant isn’t true," he said.
