Tombinski took up the post of European Union ambassador to Ukraine in September
as Ukraine’s relations with the 27-nation bloc were becoming increasingly
strained over human rights and other issues. This year, meanwhile, is
potentially momentous for the Ukraine-EU relationship, with a summit coming up
on Feb. 25 in Brussels. By year’s end, Ukraine hopes to sign an Association
Agreement with the EU.
