Recently, sounded many statements by European politicians of all levels. The theme of the application for judicial processes taking place in Ukraine. However, some of them are trying in one way or another to link the results of the negotiations on association and a free trade zone between Ukraine and the EU and these trials.
Statements of many of them cast doubt on the fact that these policies have democratic convictions. The calls and demands for legislative and executive power to intervene in the work of the judiciary, roughly contrary to European democratic principles that these policies are supposed to protect. It seems that they practice the previously assumed (and probably paid for?) obligations. Only naive people feel that these statements are made to protect Tymoshenko. In fact, they are aimed at weakening the position of Ukraine in the ongoing negotiations. Pragmatic European politicians are using this opportunity given to them. End negotiations and policies will quickly forget about their statements.
Ukraine media are seriously discussing such statements as that trials are a real threat to the signing of the agreement, Ukraine EU. In these discussions prevails politicking, not a real analysis of what is happening. Numerous attempts to inflate psychosis.
If we approach the issue seriously, all the statements of politicians are actually nothing more than a ritual dance, as an attempt to put pressure on Ukraine, which should not be paying much attention. Politics has always been a craft cynical and pragmatic. The situation in Europe is complex. The EU is facing serious economic, and political crisis. In such a situation, the EU simply can not afford to freeze negotiations with Ukraine and close to himself, for an indefinite period, a market with 47 million consumers. The luxury you could not afford in good times, but not now. And for what? Europeans have long been sorted out and have a clear idea of what these are minor politicians, they pretend to protect. And the Association Agreement EU need not less, but even more than Ukraine.
Expect that the EU will sacrifice their own interests, will depart from the line of pragmatism in defense of any Ukrainian politicians, then show your stupidity and incompetence. It is time to recall the famous words of the British minister, said half a century ago, "England has no eternal allies and permanent enemies - it is eternal and permanent interests." Since the policy has not changed. A word of England is easily replaced by the EU.
