215 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, made a statement on the recent events in Ukraine. He highlighted that the EC was shocked to hear the latest news from Ukraine about deaths of protesters, and expressed its deepest condolences to their families. The President added that he deplored in strongest possible terms the use of force and violence, and called on all sides to immediately refrain from it, and start taking steps that would help de-escalate the situation.
The President continued by saying that the overall environment had been worsening for some time and that he would like to explicitly underline the fundamental responsibility of the Ukrainian authorities to take action to de-escalate this crisis and in particular the need for them to engage in a genuine dialogue with the opposition and with civil society on the ways to overcome this deep crisis.
José Manuel Barroso added that the EC also followed with great concern the last restrictions on fundamental freedoms including freedom of expression and freedom of the media. He said he was concerned about where these developments were taking Ukraine and that he would continue following closely these developments, as well as assessing possible actions by the EU and consequences for the relations with the country.
