EU Threatens Ukraine on Accord After Tymoshenko Conviction
Ukraine put a planned trade and association agreement with the European Union at risk by jailing former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, the EU said.
The EU is “deeply disappointed” with the conviction for abuse of power, European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic told reporters in Brussels today. It “risks having profound implications for the EU-Ukraine bilateral relationship including for the conclusion of the association agreement, our political dialogue and our cooperation more broadly.”
The EU called on Ukraine “to ensure a fair, transparent and impartial process in any appeal.”
