You're reading: Mission possible

It seems that the report, co-authored by Pat Cox and Alexander Kwasniewski, was extremely positive for Ukraine, considering that the nation still has top opposition figures in prison and chaos in the rest of politics.

What allowed for such positive report is the release from prison of  former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, and the Cox-Kwasniewski mission has a lot of credit to take for his release, which was duly noted by European Parliament President Martin Shultz. 

On the day of the report, Kwasniewski looked and sounded more positive than he has been recently. It’s obvious that Lutsenko’s release has given a vast emotional boost to him and many of his colleagues in Europe. As a result of this success, even the stanchest skeptics like parliamentarian Elmar Brok reversed his position that the mission should be ended now because its work has no effect.
