BRUSSELS, March 15 (Itar-Tass) – Leader of the UDAR party Vitali Klitschko said Ukraine’s internal and foreign policy steered the country to dictatorship and international isolation.
At his meeting with the leadership of European institutions on Friday, Klitschko said it was time to introduce sanctions against Ukrainian officials. “Ukrainian citizens should not fall victims of the authorities’ policy. That is why international sanctions should be imposed on officials to deprive them of hiding money in offshore accounts and escape punishment for corruption, violate citizens’ rights and freedoms, and get rid of the parliamentary system,” he said.
“The democratic world cannot understand how one can talk about European integration by violating all rights and freedoms and about the Association Agreement while discussing the accession to the Customs Union,”
Klitschko met head of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs Elmar Brok, chairman of the European People’s Party (EPP) Wilfried Martinez and head of the EPP group in the EURONEST Parliamentary Assembly Jacek Saryusz-Wolski. Klitschko gave a letter to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and chairman of the European Parliament Martin Schulz.
