The Chairman of the EPP Group Joseph Daul is following closely the unfolding protests in Ukraine and calls on President Yanukovych to stop killing his own people.
 
“I am appalled by the horrific images that are coming from Kiev. Mr President, this must stop now!  I am making a human appeal to you to order for the security forces to stop the violence and withdraw. Democracy means dialogue and I hope it is not too late. Ukraine needs a peaceful and political solution to the current crisis. I call on you to take the necessary steps to make that happen.
 
The EPP Group stands firmly on the side of the peaceful aspirations of the Ukrainian people. I call on the EU Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso and High Representative Lady Catherine Ashton to arrange an extraordinary meeting at the highest level at the earliest possible time to undertake the necessary steps to support the Ukrainian people. The EU should do whatever is in its power to stop a civil war in Ukraine,” said Joseph Daul.
