Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Monitoring Committee Co-rapporteur, Renate Volvend would be hesitant to give a timescale for suspending monitoring of Ukraine. She spoke of this after a meeting with Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych.“With regard to when the monitoring procedure may be terminated, I cant say anything at present. We saw many people and many of the sources and people whom we met said that there was a lot of concern about the fact that Ukraine is experiencing a period of stagnation at present. They dont use the word “crisis”, they say “stagnation”, Ms Volvend said.
