The results of the October 28 parliamentary elections in Ukraine show the success of pro-European spirit in the country, according to the President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski. The state official noted that all political parties that made it to the Ukrainian parliament, but the communists, declared European integration of the country as one of their goals.
As a result of the elections, five political parties made it to the Ukrainian parliament. Pre-election plans, available at the official websites of the parties, provide their political views on the issue of European integration. The official agenda of the currently ruling Party of Regions states their intention to achieve Ukraine’s associated membership in the EU, visa-free regime, and free trade.
Oppositionist party Batkivshchyna (leader – Yulia Tymoshenko) listed plans to facilitate ratification of the association agreement and the free trade agreement with the EU, as well as visa-free regime.
