UKRAINE SUSPENDS PREPARATIONS FOR SIGNING DEAL WITH EUROPEAN UNION

Fox News on November 21, 2013, published an AP report on the Ukrainian government saying it’s suspending its preparations to sign a landmark association agreement with the European Union. Excerpts below:

Instead, the government said in a statement posted on its website Thursday that it was setting up a joint commission to work on boosting ties between Ukraine, Russia and the European Union.

The move follows the parliament’s refusal earlier today to pass a bill allowing the release of jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko…

It also dealt a harsh blow to Ukraine‘s hope to integrate with the 28-member bloc and move out of Russia’s shadow.

(Comment: No doubt the decision of the Ukrainian government is a result of unfair pressures by Russia.)
