Question for written answer E-003400-14
to the Commission
Rule 117
Konrad Szymański (ECR)

 Subject:  The possibility of supporting the construction of pedestrian border crossings on the Polish-Ukrainian border from EU funds
 Answer in writing 

The current geo-political situation is posing a significant challenge to the European Union as regards support for the integration process between Ukraine and the European Union. Apart from large-scale political steps, it is important to support cooperation at lower levels, e.g. at the level of facilitating border traffic. The low number of border crossings on the Polish-Ukrainian border is currently posing a significant problem (only 7 road crossings, whereas there are 51 on the Polish-Slovakian border of similar length), in particular pedestrian and bicycle crossings which are the cheapest to implement.

A consistent policy of building inexpensive pedestrian and bicycle border crossings for all (rather than solely for local cross-border traffic) would constitute a good means of integrating Ukrainian society with the societies of EU countries.

In connection with the foregoing, I wish to ask:

1. Has the European Union incorporated the issue of increasing the number of border crossings, in particular pedestrian and bicycle crossings, into its strategy of relations with Ukraine?
2. Can these types of objectives be financed from European funds such as, for example, the European Regional Development Fund, Cohesion Fund and TEN-T?
