The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine hopes for a constructive stand of the Ukrainian opposition in lobbying among European political partners the successful ratification of the future Association Agreement with the EU, Oleh Voloshyn, the director of the Foreign Ministry Information Policy Department, UKRINFORM reported.

"Certainly, for the opposition there is not just a place in the structure of our European integration efforts, but an extremely important place," the diplomat said.

According to him, it is natural, considering how long ties have the Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc and other Ukrainian parties with the largest political force in the European Parliament - the European People's Party.

The Ukrainian diplomat emphasized that "the active involvement of the opposition forces in lobbying for the successful ratification of this agreement by the European Parliament would be a real demonstration of the sincerity of the wishes declared by the opposition to support Ukraine on the path to the EU".

"Moreover, at the end of the main phase of negotiations, and we are confident that this will happen at the end of September this year, the European Parliament will hold the appropriate hearings, which will also influence the position of EU member states before initialing the agreement at the Ukraine-EU summit. And in the course of these hearings, the voice of our opposition, which could firmly and clearly state that, despite any disagreements with the authorities, it calls on its partners to promote Ukraine's European integration, would be a real gift from the opposition to our citizens," Voloshyn said.
