Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, wrote about Ukraine in her article “Twelve things to bring with us in 2017”.
On her official website High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy wrote “In Easter Europe, on the side of reforms and of citizens”:
“It was a year of constant work to support reforms, growth, peace, and stability at the Union’s eastern borders. First and foremost in Ukraine, with a great common effort to reform the country, fight corruption, and of course to get to the full implementation of the Minsk agreements, ending the conflict in the country’s east. With Ukraine and Georgia we took important steps towards visa liberalisation. And the work goes on with all our Eastern partners – Moldova, Belarus, Armenia and Azerbaijan – towards the summit dedicated to our Eastern partnership that will take place in Brussels this year. We do this in full respect of the history, the priorities and the political choices of each country and society. This is a partnership for reforms, for our citizens, not a partnership “against” someone – on the contrary, this is an important element towards a larger regional cooperation,” stated Mogherini.
Federica Mogherini also mentioned Ukraine while speaking about cooperation between EU an US:
“In the last few years, the European Union and the United Stated have worked side by side on every single dossier, from Syria to climate change, from Ukraine to the Middle East peace process. Such work will continue with the new administration – we are already in touch with the transition team, and myself personally with Vicepresident-elect Mike Pence – based on our interests and principles, which we always shared with the US.”
