WARSAW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk has asked the EU leadership to put up the situation in Ukraine on the agenda of discussions at the forthcoming summit meeting of the EU that will be held in Brussels.
Ukraine will top the list of items for discussion, Tusk said, adding that an appropriate query had been sent to the European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy.
President Van Rompuy recognized the arguments for putting up Ukraine for discussion as indubitable, he said. The case in hand is not only to show the intensity of attention, which the EU is watching the situation in Ukraine with but, more importantly, to try and tap specific steps for a withdrawal from the political crisis the former Soviet republic is sinking into itself in.
Tusk insisted that Ukrainian citizens should get a signal that European aid inclusive of financial assistance and an earliest possible introduction of visa-free traveling between the EU and Ukraine are possible.
He claimed that the EU is capable of passing the necessary decisions soon enough if the Ukrainian government shows respect for the norms of democracy and human rights and does not use force against demonstrators, who have been occupying Kiev’s Independence Square /the Maidan/ and downtown streets for the past two weeks in a bid to press the government into signing a controversial agreement on association between Ukraine and the EU.
