Meeting with Foreign Minister Klimkin on the latest developments in Ukraine

At an extraordinary meeting on 22.7.2014 the AFET committee had an exchange of views with Pavlo Klimkin, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, on the latest developments in the country. Members expressed their deepest sorrow for the victims of the crashed plane MH17, and Peter De Gooijer, Permanent Representative of the Netherlands to the EU, detailed the priorities the international community should follow on the investigation, the recovery of bodies, and the identification of those responsible for this tragedy.
 
Members of the European Parliament very clearly and unambiguously called for a united line between Member States on tougher sanctions towards Russia, not as a consequence of the plane crash, but to react in view of the Russian authorities' unwillingness to control the flow of arms and heavy weapons across the border to the Eastern regions of Ukraine. The Members also called for the EU to act appropriately and impose red lines upon itself when a third party violates European values and principles.
 
The peace process in the Middle East, the dire humanitarian conditions and the EU's response to the current situation were also discussed at that meeting. Members called not only for a cease-fire and the resumption of negotiations for a two-state solution but underlined the need for the EU to react without double standards.

Press Release

Following the crash of the MH17 flight, Elmar Brok, Chairman of the Committee for Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament, stated :
 
"The Russian – Ukrainian border must be closed.
 
The crash of the Malaysian Airlines flight is an immense tragedy, and I send my deepest condolences to the families and the relatives of the victims. An independent international investigation must be conducted without delay and without restrictions.
 
Wherever the responsibilities for the crash lie, this catastrophe sheds again light on the fact that the militia and rebels in the Eastern regions of Ukraine have access to sophisticated weapons. It is now time for Russia to show its credibility and prove to the world that it commits itself to establishing clear and well defined conditions for the control of borders, in order to dry up this flow of arms in the region. The full and effective control of the border by the Ukrainian authorities with the assistance from the OSCE must be ensured, and Russia has to actively use its influence over the illegally armed groups for the achievement of that goal and should set the conditions for it also on its side.
 
Russia will otherwise lose any credibility that it is interested in a peaceful political solution."

EU sanctions against Russia must be stepped up, the Ukrainian border closed to halt arms flows from Russia, and the bodies of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash victims returned, MEPs insisted in today’s debate with Ukraine’s foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin. Mr Klimkin called on the EU to show its solidarity now, as Ukraine is “being punished for its EU aspirations”. The debate opened with a minute’s silence for victims of the 17 July crash.
