Göteborg/Prague, 7 February 2014. In line with yesterday`s European Parliament resolution on Ukraine, the Platform of European Memory and Conscience sent letters today to EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy, Commission President Manuel Barroso and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton calling for a permanent observer mission of the EU in Ukraine.

There is a violent conflict swelling in an Eastern neighbourhood country of the EU. Fundamental human rights are being violated, civic rights and freedoms curtailed. The EU Council and Commission must urgently act and mediate in the conflict. It is in the interest of all Europeans,” says Platform President Göran Lindblad.
