BRUSSELS, February 22, (ITAR-TASS) - Leaders of Ukraine’s opposition and the authorities bear a full brunt of responsibility for putting an end to disorders and ensuring security of the people, a spokesman for the EU Council told Itar-Tass Saturday.
“Opposition leaders and government officials have an equal degree of responsibility for stopping the disorders and ensuring security of people and Kiev and on the rest of Ukraine’s territory,” he said. “We expect all the parties to the talks to fulfill the agreements signed with the EU mediation.”
Along with it, the EU Council officials found it difficult for the time being to assess the oppositionists’ compliance with the Friday agreements signed by President Viktor Yanukovich and the EU.
“Too little time has passed yet and the events are developing very rapidly and we should wait and see the results of Verkhovna Rada’s work,” the spokesman said.
He also refused to comment on absence of evidence that the teams of militants in Kiev, which have been proclaimed ‘the units of self-defense’, are ever going to disarm, saying he did not have any information on the issue.
The spokesman made out a reminder to all the parties to the political process in Ukraine that the EU fully supports the territorial integrity of the country.
