regarding European Parliament resolution on the situation in Ukraine
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine welcomes the European Parliament resolution on the situation in Ukraine, issued on 27 February, 2014, as well as constructive and encouraging debate on the situation in Ukraine, which took place in Strasbourg yesterday.
We note that the key provisions of the resolution coincide with the priorities of the new Ukrainian Government, especially in the context of ensuring the territorial integrity, sovereignty and unity of Ukraine, intensification of systemic reforms with the support and assistance of the EU and the soonest signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU.
We hope that clear position of the European Parliament on the prospects of Ukraine's membership in the EU in accordance with Article 49 of the EU, fixed in the resolution, will soon be confirmed by the relevant decision of the Council of the European Union.
We also appreciate the strong support by the European Parliament of the initiatives from the EU and other international partners to provide Ukraine with immediate and long-term financial assistance.
