MOSCOW, January 24,/ITAR-TASS/. The European Union is seriously concerned about the current situation in Ukraine, the EU’s ambassador to Russia, Vygaudas Usaskas, said on Friday.
“The situation aggravates in Ukraine and the European Union steps up the efforts to back the settlement of the crisis by political means,” Usaskas said.
Member of the European Commission Stefan Fule is currently in Kiev and he will meet Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich next week. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and members of the European Parliament will also arrive in the Ukrainian capital, the EU ambassador said.
“We believe that only the dialogue between all parties is an efficient way to overcome the crisis. The European Union is ready to contribute to holding the political dialogue and de-escalating the situation,” he said.
“The situation in Ukraine will be in the focus of the upcoming Russia-EU summit scheduled for January 28 due to the obvious disagreements on this issue and Ukraine’s right to freely choose the path of development,” the EU ambassador said.
