You're reading: Foreign Ministry: European lawmaker’s statement on undemocratic elections in Ukraine is his personal opinion
on social media

“We consider evaluative judgments on the upcoming elections to the
Verkhovna Rada that have been spread by the media citing some members of
the European Parliaments as personal opinions of some European
parliamentarians that do not reflect the official position of the EU.
Considering the fact that further rapprochement of Ukraine and the EU is
our priority, we have proved our commitment to democratic values not
once. Respect to the principle of the supremacy of law is important in
this context,” the ministry’s spokesman Oleksandr Dykusarov told

He stressed that the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine respects
“commentaries of our partners regarding drawbacks of the justice system
in our country and upon analysis Ukraine takes relevant measures to
achieve specific results in practice.”

“At the same time, it is obvious that conclusions regarding
democratic character of the elections should be drawn on their results,
and not three months before the voting,” Dykusarov said.
