MEP Marek Siwiec: it was not the Commission and not Ashton’s team, but the EP that helped to set up requisite conditions to sign the Association Agreement with Ukraine

Aleksander Kwasniewski and Pat Cox together with Martin Schulz have all reasons to be satisfied with the jon they have done in Ukraine, Marek Siwiec, member of European Parliament, writes in his blog on BlogActiv.

“We can run a reasonable dispute over the achievements of the mission, whether it was successful or not. It is, however, indisputable that without humiliating petitions to grant a pardon, three people were released from prison. Nevertheless, the most important one is still kept in a prison hospital,” Siwiec claims.

“Aleksander Kwasniewski and Pat Cox together with Martin Schulz have all reasons to be satisfied. The President of the European Parliament risked a lot establishing unprecedented political operation. It was not the Commission, not the Council, not Ashton’s team, but the European Parliament that did a great job in order to set up requisite conditions to sign the Association Agreement during the Vilnius Summit.

It was not by chance that Aleksander Kwasniewski was congratulated by the EU diplomacy chief Catherine Ashton and the EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle,” MEP underlines.
