B. Komorowski satisfied with Ukraine's president pardon for Lutsenko

President Bronisław Komorowski

President Bronisław Komorowski was satisfied to hear that the Ukrainian president had pardoned former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko, Presidential Minister Jaromir Sokołowski said on Sunday.


"In the president's opinion, it is a good step towards rebuilding the positive image of Ukraine which - apart from reforms - is a condition for signing an EU-Ukraine association agreement at the next Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius in November 2013," Jaromir Sokołowski said.


The presidential minister reminded that the president had repeatedly appealed for the fulfillment of conditions necessary for the signing of the accord.


"The President of Poland hopes all pro-European political forces in Ukraine will join in the process of strengthening ties with the EU," Sokołowski stressed.


The spokeswoman for Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych told PAP on Sunday that the president had pardoned Yuriy Lutsenko, former interior minister, a hero of the Orange Revolution and a harsh critic of Viktor Yanukovych.


The oppositionist claims his four-year prison sentence was politically motivated. His view is shared by the European Union. (PAP)
