4. Handle the request to the European Commission, European Parliament and EU member governments to remove all additional terms and conditions that prevent the signing of an agreement on associate membership with the EU.

5. Handle request to the European Commission, European Parliament and EU governments not to put the future of Ukraine's dependence on those individual personalities of Ukrainian politicians. -- Christopher J. Miller
