You're reading: Cox-Kwasniewski mission report in the European Parliament

Pending the final report of our mission, which we will submit to the European Parliament at the conclusion of our mandate, we would like to make several key observations regarding the current state of affairs and the way forward.

Since the last report to the Conference of Presidents on April 18, we have undertaken eight additional official missions to Ukraine (see annex for details), bringing the total number of visits since the beginning of the monitoring mission to 22.

Since the beginning of the mission, we have spent the equivalent of 12 full working weeks in Ukraine, meeting President Viktor Yanukovych 14 times, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov 21 times, Yulia Tymoshenko in hospital 13 times for about 32 hours of dialogue and meeting members of her family and defence lawyers on a regular basis. We also met on many occasions other senior current and former officeholders both within the government and the opposition, the representatives of the civil society and diplomatic corps. We are grateful for the continued high level of cooperation with all our counterparts in Ukraine, both with the authorities and with the opposition.
