on social media

Peter Stano, spokesman for European Commissioner for Enlargement and
European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule said.

“We welcome the adoption in first reading by the Verkhovna Rada on Nov. 8, of the draft legislation on the reform of
the General Prosecutor’s Office – a significant step in the reform of
Ukraine’s judiciary – and of the draft legislation for parliamentary
elections. This progress must now be consolidated by the prompt adoption
of the two laws also in a second reading. In this context, we welcome
the calling of an extraordinary session of the Verkhovna Rada next
Wednesday,” Stano said.

The spokesman also said that Ukraine should currently make a decisive
move to address the issue of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.
“We fully support the ongoing efforts by the Cox/Kwasniewski mission to
this end: their final report to the European Parliament will be of
crucial importance,” he added.
