Poroshenko must renounce violence

In view of the violent unrest in eastern Ukraine, EU leaders on Wednesday jointly called on Russia to cooperate with the country's new president. They should also demand that Petro Poroshenko renounce violent actions, the liberal-conservative daily Corriere della Sera comments: "Petro Poroshenko won the presidential election with the promise to restore peace within three months. Unfortunately he didn't explain how he plans to achieve this goal. ... If he sticks to the method we have observed during the first two days of his presidency there is every reason to be concerned. After three months of inactivity the Ukrainian military seems to be in the grips of a sudden burst of resolve. What Kiev describes as an anti-terrorism operation, as targeted action against the militia, is turning into a massive offensive that endangers or at least alarms the civil population in Donetsk. ... Petro Poroshenko's two main sponsors, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Barack Obama, should persuade him to be more cautious about how he deploys his fighter pilots and helicopter gunships."

EU Parliament can move things ahead in Ukraine

The European Union and the United States are preparing to give Ukraine short-term financial aid, according to EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton. But a financial injection alone won't help the country, the liberal-conservative daily Corriere della Sera contends, putting its hopes in the EU Parliament: "In addition to money, what is needed is proper mediation. ... In this situation the EU Parliament is taking the initiative. Today the MEPs in Brussels plan to vote on sending a permanent delegation to Kiev. With their last, time-limited delegation led by Elmar Brok, the MEPs proved that dialogue could be established with all sides, from President Yanukovych to the protesters on Independence Square. There are not many people who can take on the valuable role of mediator today."
