13. Deterioration of the situation in Eastern Ukraine (debate)
Video of the speeches

  Marju Lauristin (S&D ). – Madam President, I am sure that this so—called Normandy format is coming to an end. It is not effective, and we all know that. I fully support the view that we, with the whole European Union, need to raise our profile and our role in the peace process, and in the process of rebuilding eastern Ukraine. We should give this part of Ukraine a real plan to restore the region and show them that they can count on the European Union as the best solution and best friend.

To do that, we need proper information. Europe is full of Russian fake news about Ukraine, but only yesterday we heard that Euronews is planning to withdraw its correspondent in Ukraine, so we will not have even that meagre information. I urge Ms Mogherini to look into this and to insist that we need information from Ukraine and that Euronews should continue to work there to give us that information.
