grootCommissaris voor Uitbreiding en Europees Nabuurschapsbeleid Štefan Füle had vandaag (25 maart) een ontmoeting met gouverneur van de regio Donetsk, Serhiy Taruta.

Ze wisselden van gedachten over de huidige situatie in het land en bespraken de uitdagingen in de Donetsk-regio en de rest van het oosten van Oekraïne.

Governor Taruta, who was appointed to his office at the beginning of March, explained the economic, social and security situation in the region and outlined his priorities in tackling the existing problems by introducing reforms, increasing transparency, strengthen the rule of law and developing more co-operation with Ukraine’s EU neighbours.

Commissioner Füle stressed that the signature of the Association Agreement was a renewed stimulus for reforms and more intense co-operation between the EU and Ukraine, not only with the central authorities in Kyiv but also in the regions. “Our support to decentralization and to regions is part of our help offered to Ukraine. We will discuss these issues also during my forthcoming visit to Kyiv this week,” Commissioner Füle said. In the meeting he also repeated the position of the European Union regarding the annexation of Crimea by Russian, which the EU considers illegal. He also recalled that the Association Agreement not only respects traditional trade and economic ties between Ukraine and Russia but also creates opportunities for their further intensification.
