Polish MEPs call for steps to allow Ukraine to move closer to the EU

Poland's efforts to promote Ukraine to the EU have finally resulted in a huge success, as yesterday the European Parliament passed a resolution foreseeing Ukraine's possible EU accession. In a resolution adopted by 467 votes in favor, the MEPs congratulated the Ukrainian people for resolving a political crisis and "setting their country firmly on the path towards democracy". The resolution also said it was now time to consider other forms of association with Ukraine besides the Neighbourhood Policy, giving the country clear European prospects, possibly leading to EU membership. Polish MEPs introduced several key amendments to the text, calling for easing EU visa restrictions for Ukrainian citizens, recognizing Ukraine as a market economy and supporting its entry to the WTO. All Polish deputies across the political spectrum voted in favor of the resolution.
