Ukraine calls on the European Commission to abstain from giving one-sided assessments to Ukraine-EU Action Plan.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Konstantin Yeliseyev claimed this in an interview with RFE/RL.

“We have no doubt that we have been successfully fulfilling the Action Plan. But, for us, a more reliable source is a general assessment, which is agreed, and prepared for more than a day. It was made on March 11 (at the Ukraine-EU Council meeting)”, K.Yeliseyev said.

According to him, “the assessment they propose now is a one-sided assessment by EU. We do not welcome this approach. A logical question appears: why there is no assessment of how EU fulfills its obligations? It is even not technical, it is a political remark. Why they neglect the position of partner countries?”

As UNIAN reported earlier, on April 3, the European Commission publicized its Progress Report Ukraine. It marked progress in many spheres. At the same time, authors of the report pointed out that due to political instability, economical and structural reforms in Ukraine slowed down last year. Besides, the Brussels believes that not much has been done in the sphere of struggle against corruption.
