Ukraine – "Euro 2012" (May 4, 2012)
With the approach of Euro 2012, jointly organized by Poland and Ukraine, which will be an important sporting event, France reiterates her deep concern about developments in the political situation in Ukraine, and the fate of Ms. Tymoshenko in particular.
France reaffirms that the European Union’s relationship with Ukraine, as with the other countries of the Eastern Partnership, is based on values of freedom, democracy and the respect of fundamental rights.
We call on the Ukrainian authorities to honor their commitments concerning the respect for fundamental freedoms and to take the necessary decisions on this in the next few weeks.
We’re currently in close contact with our European partners in view of the situation.
