Asked by EURACTIV if the Commission was advising the Ukrainian opposition to opt for power sharing, spokesperson Pia Ahrenkilde-Hansen avoided a direct answer and insisted that Füle held meetings both with the opposition and the authorities. An “inclusive political process” is “decisive” for stability in Ukraine, she said. ‘The first step is regaining the trust of the people by stopping the spiral of violence and intimidation.’ Ahrenkilde-Hansen added.
Enlargement and Neighbourhood Commissioner Štefan Füle is due to return to Kyiv on Monday evening and be present at the time when the opposition and the power in Ukraine would attempt to negotiate a way out from the turmoil.
Füle was in Kyiv last Friday and reportedly his role of mediator was praised by both sides.
