*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Speaking to "Eurofora" after concluding an Important Meeting between EU and Ukranian sides in EU Parliament this Morning in Strasbourg, the President of EU Delegation, Dariusz Rosati, mainstream ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP from Poland, stressed mainly that "Support" to Ukraine's "Security" and "Reforms" Toped the Discussions, with the Fight against "Corruption" remaining as a "Starting" point, but also the General "De-Centralisation", despite an Initial "Success", still "Needing" to be properly Implemented in real practice (See Infra).

Topically, this 2 Days-Long EU-Ukraine Association Committee's Meetings, which Extended from Yesterday, Wednesday Afternoon, until Today, i.e. Thursday Morning and Noon, (18-19 April 2018), took place Shortly Before the Forthcoming, Next Presidential Elections in Ukraine, scheduled at the latest on 2019.

- Meanwhile, the Next EU-Ukraine Association Committee Meetings are due to take place "Probably in Kiev", EU Chairman Rosati announced Today.


- Questioned by "Eurofora" about "the Main Points", Now, of the Present Meeting, here in Strasbourg, he started by saying that EU expressed its "Support to Ukraine", from 2, parallel, Points of View :

 - I.e., "Support for Ukraine's Security and Territorial Integrity, that's one thing", he reiterated.


 - "And then, secondly, Support for the Process of Reforms", he added.


- Indeed, these Reforms are a Key point, "which, under the Association Agreement, was a Condition for Ukraine to come Closer to Europe", Dariusz Rosati clearly reminded, as a matter of Fact.


 - In this regard, "there is a Number of them" (Key Reforms).


 - Asked by "Eurofora" to Selectively point at "the Most Important, among them", Dariusz Rosati immediately Replied, by pointed, from the outset, at : - "Anti-Corruption I'd say, if I were to Start".


+ "Then, Privatisation, Electoral Law Reform, the Judiciary System", etc, he went on to selectively Add, apparently by approximative order of Priorities.


++ "And (general) DeCentralisation", he pointed out Afterwards. "Which has been a Success, But Needs to be Continued", as he stressed.


He Obviously refered to the General DeCentralisation Process, mainly of Administrative nature, and Not at all to the "Hot" Political Issue of a Deal on a Special Status of Regional Autonomy for the Dissident Eastern Regions of Donetsk-Luhansk, which Notoriously is a Key-Part of the Minsk Peace Agreements between Ukranian, Russian, German and French Leaders since February 2015 (See all the Original, Full Texts, published then by "Eurofora" at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fulltextsofallukraineagreements.html, etc), and even of President Poroshenko's initial Proposals' Highlights, (Together with priority Cease-Fire, but also Elections and Border Issues, subsequently), as they had been Briefly Resumed in his 1st Official Visit Abroad, at CoE's Paneuropean Parliamentary Assembly in Strasbourg, already as early as since June 2014, (Comp. f.ex. relevant "Eurofora"s NewsReports from that event at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coevenicecommissiononukranianpresidentreforms.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeandpoliticaldialogueinukraine.html , etc).


Indeed, as "Eurofora" witnessed earlier Today Morning in that EU Parliament's EU-Ukraine Association Committee's conclusion, various Practical Issues around the actual "Implementation" of those, still on the process, General DeCentralisation Reforms, were Widely and Actively Discussed among various Participants, on several concrete points.


Other Discussions among MEPs included the Electoral Law, as well as several Ukranian MEPs apparent Desire for a "Stronger Wording" in the traditional Joint Declaration's draft paper.


- Their desire probably concerned the "Number 1 Priority" for them : I.e. "to put and End to the War", still going-on "Less than 2.000 kms from Brussels", as an Experienced, Top Ukranian Diplomat from Kiev's Government, told "Eurofora", shortly afterwards.

However, he said that in EU Parliament's Building in Strasbourg, which is Located, Comparatively, even much More Closer to Ukraine...

+ By a Surprizing Coincidence, Later-on this Same Day, USA's mainstream, Wash.DC. HeadQuartered Newspaper "Washington Times", just Published a fresh Article on Ukraine, Focusing, precisely, on the above-mentioned, Forthcoming Presidential Elections (Comp. Supra), where it makes a Strong Criticism mainly of the alleged "Corruption", still Tolerated, if not so much by President Poroshenko's Government, at least much more by a Wider "System" of "Oligarchs", (as various Ukranian a.o. People used to call their Establishment, already since Many Years Ago, as "Eurofora" had witnessed).

- So that, "Now Leading opinion Polls is a familiar face", according to Today's "Washington Times" : I.e. "former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko".  


Tymoshenko has Notoriously served also in Prison, at a recent Past, during Yanukovich former regime, but had also brokered, before that, a Gas-Deal between Ukraine and Russia, with President Vladimir Putin, and strongly Backed, Afterwards, controversial MP Nadiya Savchenko, who, after being Liberated by Russia from Prosecution Accusing her to have Helped Target and Kill Russian Journalists reporting on the Ukranian Conflict on the spot, and becoming later even a CoE Assembly's MEP in Strasbourg, she was, Recently, Banished from the current Kiev's Authorities reportedly for having Dared go Meet and Speak with pro-Autonomy Regions of Donetsk-Luhansk, seeking a Pan-Ukranian Dialogue, so that she was also Striped from her National Credentials to the CoE, ousted also from her former Party of YT (but Not yet Deprived from her MP Seat), and, Nowadays Accused and Jailed for alleged Violent "Coup" Attempt including "Terrorist" "Bombs" against the Parliament, etc., just a few Days after having, Initially Herself, Accused a Group of Politicians to have Staged and Covered-up the non-elucidated yet Deadly "Snipers" Killings, of Both Policemen and Demonstrators, which had notoriously Triggered the Bloody Clashes in Kiev on February 2014, Droping a written Peace-Agreement Compromise between the Government and the Opposition, signed under the auspices of EU Foreign Ministers from Germany, France and Poland, kick-Starting the Brutal Ukranian Conflict that Divided the European Continent.


Earlier, "Eurofora" had covered Yulia Tymoshenko's Daughter's and Lawyer's (nowadays CoE Assembly MEP) efforts, at the ECHR, to Protect and Free her from Jail on 2012 and 2013, (See, f.ex., among others, also : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/echrandeumovesontymoshenko.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/echrspokesmanandtymoshenkolawyezr.html , etc), as we had covered also former Ukranian President Yushchenko's EU Meetings, f.ex. since 2008 at Elysée Palace in Paris, and/or at the CoE in Strasbourg, (Comp.: in http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/irish/beneeuropehumanrights.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ukraine.html , etc), but also his successor, President Yanukovitch official Visit to CoE's Assembly here on 2010 (See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ukraineyanukovych.html+ http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/conservativesukraine.html , etc), and, naturaly, the incubent President Poroshenko, already from his 1st Visit to the CoE in Strasbourg on 6/2014 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coevenicecommissiononukranianpresidentreforms.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeandpoliticaldialogueinukraine.html)  up to the latest, on 10/2017 (f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/porosenkoukrainecypruscomparison.html, etc).

More Recently, "Eurofora" had, naively but substantially, Suggested to Yulia Tymoshenko, after meeting her anew at the CoE in Strasbourg on 9/2014, that, considering what she had offered, experienced and suffered, she might legitimately use the Flag of Human Rights in order to Try to re-Unite Together all People of Ukraine, both from the pro-Kiev National Government's side, and from the pro-Autonomy Dissident Regions of Donetsk/Luhansk, who have All Suffered from Sly Attempts to Provoke Deadly Conflict, (with Many Civilian Victims), and Divide a formerly Peaceful Country, but even all Europe. Something that, apparently, she did not exclude at all to consider, in one way or another, for the foreseeable Future, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/juliatimoshenkoforhumanrightsbridge.html , etc).

However, the above-mentioned "Washington Times"' Article published Today on Ukraine, prefers better to Back anOther Presidential Candidate for 2019 : Valeri Babych, an MP and Businessman, who has just declared recently his 2nd Candidacy for the Top Job, reportedly running on a Program referring to Morality, Human Capital and Health Care, as well as SME's Business, etc.


But, Nowaday, the Road to those forthcoming 2019 Presidential Elections in Ukraine, still seems somewhat ... Long, Bumpy, and UnPredictable.

   Renew Europe's Historic Legend with Parthenon's pure white marble at the eve of crucial 2009 EU Elections, was the ambition of an interesting Art Exhibition, with more topical Symbols than expected, organized by EU Parliament's 1st vice-President Rodi Kratsa-Tsagaropoulou and MEP Marie Panayotopoulos- Cassiotou, Chair of the Inter-group on Family policy, during March A session in Strasbourg.     

According to the Ancient Legend, God Zeus, charmed by young Girl Europe, was trasformed into a strong Bull with Wings, and when she tamed him with Human affection, they flew over the Sea to live together in a New Land with large, fertile landscapes.  


- "There, they saw the Continent with a "Large Front" ("Eureia -opse" in Greek => Eur-opse => Europe)", reminded the Sculptor, Mary Papaconstantinou, of the European Women Association, honored by awards in Paris, Athens and Strasbourg.

    Thus, Europe's Legend combines Symbols of Energy and Strength, with caring Human personality, to bring towards New, large Horizons :

    - "Modern Art for this Ancient Greek Legend here in Strasbourg reminds that Europe, placing Human dignity at its heart, always finds the strength to overcome any Crisis towards New achievements. And EU Parliament offers Citizens a chance to artfully interact", said MEP Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou.

    Structured like some Rembrand's pictural sequences, Europe's sculptural exhibition forms a series of many statutes, sized and flat as a PC screen, representing many scenes inspired from the original Legend, "according to Moschos' text, a Writer of the 2nd century B.C.", said Sculptor Mary to "EuroFora".  

    Made by sparkling pure white Marble full of Symbols, they incite to think but also to act, as in front of a Book with half of its pages full of written text, but another half, free to write on white paper..

    While several EU politicians think that one of the most important characteristics of the 2009 EU Elections is that from their outcome may depend Europe's Identity and Future, Culture Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras (a former MEP) send the message that, precisely, such modern Art linked to Historic legends may help "EU Citizens search the origins of Europe's Identity".

     - "The Legend says that they founded a New City, Thebes, and that reminds us that Europe is always a project of Invention and Creation", added EU Parliament's vice-President, Rodi Kratsa - Tsagaropoulou.

    Sculptor Mary Papaconstantinou said that she "tried for years to find the same White Marble from Penteli Mountain that was used by Praxitelis and all those who created Parthenon", symbol of Democracy and one of the 7 wonders of the World.

    - "By shaping this millenary Greek Marble to revive Europe's Ancien Legend with Modern Art, it reminds that Europe is a Hope for a better Future after Crisis, combining Energy for Development, with care for the Human person", said the sculptor's compatriot from Chios island, famous from French artist Delacroix's historic painting, MEP Panayotopoulos - Cassiotou.

    She now lives with her Family close to Rhine river, at EU's heart, near Bonn, where had started to work for the first time on European issues the new EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle :

    By a symbolic coincidence, Europe's legend built anew with Parthenon's marble, marked for ever the beginning of young and energetic Welle's duties as new head of EU Parliament's administration, since he saluted the retiring, out-going S.G., the experienced Harold Rohmer, shortly afterwards, at another gathering on the same floor of Louise Weiss' superb building in Strasbourg...

    Organisers of both events said that it was a pure coincidence. People are free to believe them, or hope otherwise...


**********************

    They disagree in almost everything, except from one thing :

- EU Parliament's Art unites even opposed politicians in a common belief for Europe : Cyprus' example...


imag0859_400

Rarely united together, but posing for "EuroFora" with the statute of Europe and Zeus flying over the Sea, ChristianDemocrat/EPP's MEP Yannis Kasulides, a frontrunner Presidential candidate in 2008, former Foreign Minister and Government Spokesman, and EuroLeft's MEP Kyriakos Triantafylides, Chairman of EU - Palestinian Council delegation, from the governing party AKEL (new Left) of the elected President, disagree on almost everything, except from their common claim that Europe of the Ancient Legend, when she flew with God Zeus from Ancient Phynecia to the West, must have crossed the island of Cyprus !

Hard to prove the contrary, 3.000 years later...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
