Chairman of the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Cooperation Committee, MEP, European Conservatives and Reformists Group Member Paweł Kowal noted in his press statement that deep and comprehensive free trade area is a chance to complete the transformation process in Ukraine, ForUm learned from the press office of the Party of Regions.

Paweł Kowal reminded that on October 27 MEPs adopted a resolution concerning the situation in Ukraine, in which they "pay attention to irregularities in the Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's case, but at the same time they stress, that the strengthening of EU-Ukraine relations and the membership perspective is in the interest of both sides".

"This perspective, which could be realised after fulfilling appropriate conditions by Kyiv is a guarantee for Ukrainian citizens that the efforts in implementing the Association Agreement and the DCFTA would in the longer perspective compensate Ukrainian citizens with a full participation in creation of their common future in the EU," the MP said.

At the same time, Paweł Kowal noted that last week's declaration in Brussels concerning the conclusion of negotiations on the DCFTA between the EU and Ukraine is a good sign for the further integration of Ukraine.

"The DCFTA would simplify trade contacts with Ukrainian citizens, improve business climate and positively influence the economic situation in the country. This document is an integral part of the Association Agreement, which initialisation is expected to take place during the EU-Ukraine summit in December. The European Union should strive for fast implementation of the Association Agreement with Ukraine to efficiently help the authorities in Kyiv to introduce the democratic standards in the country," he emphasized.

Chairman of the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Cooperation Committee stressed that fast initialisation of the Association Agreement is a key factor in the successful continuation of the transition process in Ukraine.

"The EU politicians shall bear in mind that the key partner in the ratification process of the Association Agreement is the Ukrainian society. This document is an answer to the justified European ambitions of the Ukrainian citizens," the politician summed up.
