Dear Jose Manuel Barroso,
I have taken note with disappointment of the decision by Yanukovich, Azarov and others on 21 November 2013 to suspend preparations for signing the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area. I remain convinced that the signing of the Agreement and accepting Ukraine in the EU would provide the best possible support of Ukraine’s reform course and modernisation in view of building a prosperous and stable future for the Ukrainian people.
I welcome your strong condemnation of the excessive use of force against peaceful protesters by the police on 30 November and 11 December 2013. Let me just reiterate that at least since the 2010 decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, the country has no constitution as the current constitutional order is set by the institution which has no right to do this. This means the country has no officials who can represent it and sign agreements. In accordance with the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties such agreements are void.
Your recognition of the Usurper of Ukraine Yanukovich as the legitimate president of the country has not only helped to assure the police that it is following legitimate orders to beat peaceful protesters, but also provided the way for his deals with Moscow. Although it is Yanukovich and his regime who are mainly responsible for the usurpation of power in Ukraine and the violence against the peaceful protesters, I am sure you personally and the rest of the EU external and internal services have their responsibility for what is going on in Ukraine.
The EU leadership had been warned on several occasions about the illegitimacy of Yanukovich and his regime. The last warning came on the eve of the Vilnius Summit, when EuroPol was asked to arrest Yanukovich. Should Yanukovich be arrested in Vilnius, Ukrainian police would have no one in the regime to protect as they might finally come to realise that they have been taking orders from an illegitimate government.
Dear Mr Barroso, you are unable to answer warnings from citizens and uphold European principles of the rule of law. You, the Director of Europol and leaders of other EU institutions and services in charge of the rule of law and relations with Ukraine must resign.
Please rest assured of my continued commitment to democracy, development, the rule of law, as well as political association and economic integration of Ukraine with the EU.
