The Ukrainian government must fulfill its promise to address all cases of selective justice if the Association Agreement with the EU is to be signed, Vice President of the European Parliament Jacek Protasiewicz has said, according to official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"I appeal to the Ukrainian authorities, in order to not lose this opportunity, they must treat seriously all the restrictions set by the EU for the signature of the agreement and fulfill their obligations and repeated promises to address the problem of selective justice and to show clear progress on the road to reform," Jacek Protasiewicz said, commenting on the decision by the European Commission to adopt the draft decision of the Council of the European Union recommending the signing of an association agreement with Ukraine.

The EP VP underscored that only concrete steps by Ukraine will ensure unanimous support by the EU member states and the European Parliament. However, he stressed that the decision of the European Commission is only technical.

"EU-Ukraine relations are at a crucial moment. The European Union has focused its attention primarily on the progress of Ukraine supported by tangible results. I am convinced that meaningful and appropriate actions will ensure unanimous support for the signing of the agreement," he added.
