The Socialist International  refused to the Socialist Party of Ukraine in presenting the full membership in this organization.

Ukrayinska Pravda newpaper reports this referring to the source in the secretariat of the 23rd congress of the Socialist International, which took place in Athens during June 30 – July 2.

Earlier leader of the Socialist Party of Ukraine Oleksandr Moroz said several times that  his party became the full member of the Socialist International in January 2006. However the Council of the Socialist International only gave recommendation to increase the status of the SPU to full member. That is why the party of Moroz is only among consultative members in the list of the Socialist International.
