Marek Siwiec MEP on Poland & Europe

The negotiations concerning a special resolution on current developments in Ukraine – and, precisely speaking, on Yulia Tymoshenko’s case – will start in a while in Strasbourg.

Assessment of Yulia Tymoshenko’s case itself is not properly the subject of dispute among political groups. She has been sentenced on the basis of a Stalinist law, charged with astronomical fines and prevented from political activity by the deprivation of civil rights. Her process has not confirmed the suspicions of corruption.

What is different in our assessments is the vision of what should be the political reaction to the situation. Some MEPs (EPP) believe that the talks concerning the association agreement should be suspended, and the others are not so rigorous.

Anyway, this short text can determine the future relations between the EU and the Ukraine.
