At least nine EU countries demand that Ukraine assigns Vice Prime Minister for European integration. Yevropeiska Pravda, a Ukrainian information portal, reported this January 15.

According to some sources, the initiative belongs to Danish diplomats. Rikard Jozwiak, correspondent of Radio Liberty in Brussels, confirmed this information on his Twitter account (see the screenshot below).

The 9 countries might be joined by others. The signatures are being collected.

January 18 in Brussels, Foreign Ministers of EU Countries will gather on a session where, among other issues, situation in Ukraine will be discussed.

Previously, President Petro Poroshenko urged the government and the parliamentary coalition to assign the Vice Prime Minister for European integration.

In December 2014, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk also supported the initiative, offering Ukraine’s Ambassador in the EU Kostyantyn Yeliseev to take up the post. However, in July 2015, Poroshenko signed the decree on assigning Yeliseev Deputy Head of Presidential Administration.
