 As Long As Tymoshenko is in Prison Bundestag Will Block Ukraine-EU Agreement

German parliament will block Association Agreement with Ukraine until Yulia Tymoshenko is released.

Censor.NET reports that Bundestag European Integration Committee chairman Gunther Krichbaum stated: "Agreement on the EU association with Ukraine will be blocked. As a committee chairman on the European integration I will recommend it until Yulia Tymoshenko's case is closed," he said after the meeting with Yevheniya Tymoshenko.

"This case is symbolic in regard to Ukraine's human rights and democracy. You cannot be indifferent to it," stressed Krichbaum.

He stressed that the European Union keeps a watchful eye on how the elections are going. "The international community keeps track of the election process in Ukraine and will investigate in case there are any violations," said Krichbaum.
