The ministry expressed misunderstanding with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius’ recent statement saying Ukraine’s party “Svoboda” (Freedom) “is more right than other parties”.
He added, “It is well-known that this is the nationalist party. Moreover, it has Racist, anti-Semitic and Xenophobic views. The party calls for banning the Russian language in Ukraine”.
“We’re bewildered with the fact that how easy the Western partners ‘adapt’ their positions for the sake of situational geopolitical dividends. We must say recently they’ve assessed the party and its leaders more objectively,” the ministry said.
On December 13, 2012 the European Parliament (EP) condemned the Svoboda party’s views, which run counter the European Union fundamental values and principles. The EP resolution urged the Ukrainian parliament’s democratic parties not to cooperate with the Svoboda party, the ministry said.
“Now we watch the situation when the Svoboda party’s leaders, including such person as Oleg Tyagnibyuk, became rather respectable in the West. We consider any manifestations of nationalism, Xenophobia and anti-Semitism dangerous. We hope that responsible politicians will draw correct conclusions,” the ministry said.
