The G7 Ambassadors to Ukraine consider that prosecution of those guilty or abusing their office is the right step but also noting that the current situation in Ukraine is not comparable to that after the Revolution of Dignity in 2014.
“While it is right to hold those guilty or abusing their office to account, the situation in Ukraine today is, in our conviction, not comparable to that after the Revolution of Dignity,” reads the statement of the G7 Ambassadors to Ukraine posted on Twitter.
The Ambassadors noted that they had been appreciative of reform progress achieved in some important areas since 2014.
“Electoral change and political rotation are the norm in democracies. Indiscriminate bans on all participants in executive and legislative governance are not,” the statement reads.
