Member of the Alliance '90/The Greens group in the Bundestag, a member of the PACE Marieluise Beck told Ukrinform, Censor.NET reports.
The lawmaker believes that Ukraine has fulfilled all the requirements for visa waiver program with the EU by introducing the e-declaration initiative. According to the PACE member, the ball is now on the EU's court, and it can no longer postpone the visa issue but must keep its promise to abolish visas for Ukrainians.
Marieluise Beck warns that otherwise the EU may face Ukrainians losing confidence in the European values and trigger slowdown in implementation of reforms in Ukraine.
German politician says that the electronic declaration system overseen by the IMF is an important step towards greater transparency of the parliament where business is heavily involved in politics.
The Bundestag member stresses that operation of the e-declaration system in Ukraine is still a success in the post-Soviet space despite the fact that the assets have not been disclosed in full as before. Marieluise Beck recalled that this was the transparency the Maidan supporters demanded.
