The agreement is composed
of a political part and another involving a deep and comprehensive
free trade agreement, which will pave the way for a free trade zone
between the EU and Ukraine.
If signed and ratified by
all parties, the agreement will move Ukraine closer joining the
27-member union, which is Ukraine’s foreign policy priority. It will
also put Ukraine on a clear path of European integration.
The agreement, in
particular, points out that “the
European Union acknowledges the European aspirations of Ukraine and
welcomes its European choice.”
