"The European Parliament stresses that in any democratic society new elections are the way out of political crisis, when there is need to restore the legitimacy of the government ", Maria Ionova said. She also noted that the European Parliament urges that Ukrainian authorities should engage in negotiations with the protesters, in order to avoid the escalation of violence and destabilization in the country.
"Europe calls on the EU institutions and the Member States to be more open to the Ukrainian community. This will be help for faster, accelerating signing of a visa-free regime with the EU ", Ionova said. The MP also said that many European guests would soon visit the Maidan, including representatives of the European Parliament.
