original version


The Greens have expressed serious concern about the situation in Ukraine and the crackdown against democratic pro-EU demonstrations and pushed to ensure it is a priority item of this week's plenary session. The EU needs to do all in its power to support the pro-European mobilisation. To this end, the Greens have pushed for a special EP delegation to be sent to Kiev. This hearing will provide an opportunity to discuss the situation with those on the ground.
