“With a deep regret we took into account the comments of the Information Policy Department of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine concerning Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira. These comments are ungrounded and unjustified attacks on the personal integrity and professionalism of Ambassador Teixeira. We categorically reject them," M. Kocijancic said.
