BRUSSELS, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule has canceled a visit to Ukraine he was expected to make in the coming few days in the light of latest events in Ukraine, Peter Stano, an official spokesman for the Commissioner told Itar-Tass.
He vehemently refused to comment on the Ukrainian government’s decision to suspend preparations for signing an agreement on association with the EU.
Well-informed sources on Fule’s staff told Itar-Tass he was holding intensive consultations with colleagues in the European Commission that was drafting a special statement on the situation in Ukraine.
The statement will be published Friday morning in the footsteps of the consultations led by the co-chairmen of the mission for supervision over justice in Ukraine, Pat Cox and Alexander Kwasniewski, were holding Thursday afternoon with Ukrainian opposition in Kiev.
Some sources indicated the two men are expected to meet overnight to Friday with Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is serving a seven-year jail term for occupational abuses in the course of signing a Ukrainian-Russian agreement on the purchases of natural gas at the beginning of 2009.
