"We have strong support and solidarity from the European Parliament on the issue of ratification of the Agreement. Bright evidence of that is the fact that this issue was considered in record-breaking time - within two weeks instead of the normally required three months.
Today’s almost unanimous decision of the Committee reflects the pro-Ukrainian balance of power on the eve of a crucial vote next week in Strasbourg.
We are grateful for the EP groups for support of the joint initiative of the Presidents Poroshenko and Schulz regarding the simultaneous ratification of the Agreement in Kyiv and Strasbourg respectively. "
Recommendation of the Committee was adopted in Brussels on 49 votes against 8 (4 - abstained).
