WARSAW, January 24, 1:35 /ITAR-TASS/. European Union can introduce sanctions against Ukraine in connection with the acute political situation there at any moment, Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski said in a statement published by Polish news agencies Thursday.
He made an explicit warning that the Ukrainian authorities should know for certain the sanctions are hanging in the balance and can go in effect anytime if the spiral of the conflict is not stopped.
Komorowski, one the Western politicians rendering active political support to Ukraine's irreconcilable opposition, said the situation in Kiev was developing in a very bad direction. He admitted that the risk of a deepening of the crisis and its resolution through the use of force remained unabated.
This is very dangerous for Ukraine, he said, adding that the main thing at the moment was to avert a possible enactment of violent solutions.
Radical moods are dominant on both sides, Komorowski said.
He voiced the hope the talks between the authorities and the opposition would bring about the desired effects.
