In the context of EU-Ukrainian relations one positive deed is worth more than a million words. To complete the ratification process for Associate status for Ukraine with the EU ALL 27 members of the European Union must agree to this Treaty. That will be almost impossible if major changes are not made in Ukraine's judicial quagmire and this will have to include the release without condition of all Ukrainian political prisoners. This is a hard pill for Yanukovych and his minions to swallow but there is no other real alternative except an undesired Customs Union with Moscow.

Well, it seems the imbecile "president" has actually chosen another alternative: the Zimbabwean path, i.e. international isolation.
