Van der Linden said in an interview that Strasbourg was the second city after Moscow that President Viktor Yushchenko had visited following his inauguration. He added that PACE was interested in democratic developments in Ukraine and intended to examine the situation in the country.

The PACE delegates are scheduled to meet with the Ukrainian prime minister, foreign minister and parliamentarians during their two-day visit.
