The European Parliament will send a mission to Ukraine which will assess what should be done to improve the institutional capacity of the Verkhovna Rada.

This was announced on the official website of the Verkhovna Rada.

Irish politician Pat Cox will lead a mission on needs assessment. Previously, he, along with former Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski, sought the release of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko from prison.

The mission will arrive in Ukraine in September and will run for three months. It will act within the framework of the Memorandum between the Verkhovna Rada and the European Parliament. The Ukrainian Parliament will start a special coordination group which will work with the mission. It will be headed by the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Volodymyr Groysman.

“In order to allow for quality interaction with the Mission, a special coordination group will be created in the Verkhovna Rada which I will personally coordinate,” said Groysman.

On July 3, Volodimir Groysman and the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the Verkhovna Rada and the European Parliament, as well as on a framework for joint parliamentary support and improvements in institutional capacity.
