Formation of new Cabinet of Ministers is Ukrainian decision only, says E.U. Delegation to Ukraine

The E.U. is an external observer in the process of creating a new government in Ukraine. This was said by the Ambassador of the E.U. to Ukraine Jan Tombinski during the conference on auditing and accounting reform.

"I am looking at this process as an outer observer, involved in political matters of Ukraine, but still outer. In this decision the main question is what path Ukraine would like to choose," the E.U. Ambassador commented on the latest changes in the Ukrainian government.

"I won't say anything about names because we don't have a personal policy," he said emphasizing the Ukrainian society should be involved in this decision.
