The European Parliament welcomed the progress demonstrated by Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, reads the resolution published at the Parliament’s website.

MEPs also pointed out that EU financial support must be matched by concrete progress on reform.
The document includes references to certain setbacks for all three countries that slow down their progress in implementation of the Association Agreement.
“MEPs condemn Russia’s suspension of its free trade agreement with Ukraine at the very moment when the EU-Ukraine free trade deal entered into force. They deplore the "heavy trade restrictions" on Ukraine’s exports to Russia, voice concerns about Ukraine's economic and financial standstill and repeat the need for further EU financial assistance. They call on EU member states to avoid building new gas pipelines from Russia that bypass Ukraine, such as "Nord Stream II", reads the document.
