The Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union and the relevant resolution of the European Parliament have to contain norms of Ukraine's EU membership prospect, MEP from Latvia Alexander Mirsky (Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats) emphasized in his comments, ForUm learned from the Party of Regions press office.

"Ukraine's EU membership prospect should be fixed in the Association Agreement. The draft joined resolution of the European Parliament, which today is previously agreed by all political groups, also contains it. And the consolidated position of the European Parliament is to include this norm, if the EPP (political group of the European people's parties. - Ed.) does not invent something new," he said.

According to politician, "the most important in the current situation is not to succumb to emotions and to agree on the final term of the Association Agreement signing." Alexander Mirsky is convinced that it is the urgent task of the MFA of Ukraine and all Europeans and Ukrainians, politicians who support the country’s integration to the EU.

"To allude to some situation in Ukraine concerning Tymoshenko, in order all Ukrainian people suffer... After all, non-conclusion of the treaty will inflict damage not to those who are currently in power in Ukraine, but to ordinary people. Are they guilty that the Ukrainian legislation wasn’t aligned with European standards?" the MEP said.

Alexander Mirsky said that the situation around Ukraine "shakes today the entire European political elite." However, the politician stressed that Europe needs Ukraine. "Europe should not think that Ukraine is asking itself ... If there were no mutually beneficial situation for the Association Agreement signing for both parties, perhaps, Ukraine would be just cynically shown the door," he considers.

According to MEP, Ukrainian politicians should remember that they "are not students, but full, full-blooded players on the European space."

"From this position one should be aware that nobody will provide any services and present gifts. This agreement is mutually beneficial," Alexander Mirsky summed up.
