BRUSSELS, January 16 /ITAR-TASS/. The European Parliament (EP) will send a mission of 12 deputies to Kiev on January 28-29 to analyse the political situation in the republic, an official of the European Parliament’s press service told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The parliamentarians plan to meet the participants in rallies on Independence Square, members of the Ukrainian government, representatives of opposition parties, judicial authorities and non-governmental organisations,” the official said.
Upon their return from Kiev, the European deputies will prepare an expert assessment, which will be used as the basis for the European Parliament’s special report on priorities of the European Union’s relations with countries of the Eastern Partnership programme.
Pavel Koval, the head of the European Parliament delegation for relations with Ukraine, has received instructions to draft the assessments.
