European Union finally ratifies Association Agreement with Ukraine

11 Juillet 2017

Current Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed the European Union agreement in June 2014, but it remained unratified after 61 percent of Dutch voters opposed it in a citizen-driven, nonbinding referendum in April 2016. The Netherlands was the last country to ratify the document. In April 2016, Dutch voters held a referendum on the issue and rejected the agreement by 61 percent of votes out of fears that the deal would obligate the Netherlands to provide financial or military support to Kiev.

The European Union's 28 member states on July 11 formally endorsed the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.

After a long ratification process held up by a referendum in the Netherlands, the 28-nation European Union said Tuesday the economic and political agreement should kick in on September 1. This takes place on the eve of the EU-Ukraine summit in Kyiv, on 12 and 13 July.

The conclusion and entry into force of the agreement will now give a new impetus to the cooperation in areas such as foreign and security policy, justice, freedom and security (including migration) taxation, public finance management, science and technology, education and information society.
