Is concerned about the rising nationalistic sentiment in Ukraine, expressed in support for the Svoboda Party, which, as a result, is one of the two new parties to enter the Verkhovna Rada; recalls that racist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic views go against the EU's fundamental values and principles and therefore appeals to pro-democratic parties in the Verkhovna Rada not to associate with, endorse or form coalitions with this party..."
- European Parliament , 13th December 2012 resolution on the situation in Ukraine
That was then, this is now... Svoboda now has three members in Ukraine's interim cabinet - the Deputy PM (!), the Defense Minister (!), and the National Security & Defense Council Secretary.
