    Ukraine is a sovereign country and we respect its decision. However, we are disappointed that the process of bringing Ukraine closer to the European Union has been stopped by its government on the final straight.

    This decision may lead to its indefinite suspension and to irreversible losses in the process of modernisation, reform and democratisation that Ukraine needs so much today. There is a risk of losing what has been achieved as a result of long and difficult preparations to sign the Association Agreement.


    We remind that the final decision on whether to sign the Association Agreement with the EU will be taken by Ukraine’s Security Council and president.


    The Ukrainian authorities bear the exclusive responsibility for this decision. Poland and the European Union were prepared to make a far-reaching compromise.


    Poland will still support fostering good neighbourly relations with Ukraine and strengthening pro-European attitudes in the Ukrainian society.
