On Tuesday, the EPP Working Group on Foreign Affairs debated the EU's Macro-Financial Assistance (MFA) for Ukraine ahead of a plenary vote next week.

Following that, several key spokespeople on Ukraine from the EPP Group made the statement below:

"We have high expectations that the final vote on the High Anti-Corruption Court will take place this coming Thursday as planned. However, if this is not the case, and given the already long delays in the implementation of this important element of the anti-corruption institutional architecture, we decided that the legislative text on the MFA should be withdrawn from the agenda and not put to vote in the European Parliament next week in Strasbourg."

Statement by: Sandra Kalniete MEP, EPP Group Vice-Chair for Foreign Affairs; David McAllister, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee; Dariusz Rosati, Chairman of the Delegation for relations with Ukraine; Elmar Brok, lead DEG (Democracy and Election support Group) Member on Ukraine; Michael Gahler, Standing Rapporteur on Ukraine and Jarosław Wałęsa, Rapporteur on the MFA for Ukraine.

Note to Editors
The EPP Group is the largest political group in the European Parliament with 219 Members from 28 Member States
