The bloc and Ukraine "initialed" the Association Agreement, officials said, despite some unease among EU nations over Ukraine’s support for democracy, especially after Ukraine’s top opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years in jail on abuse of office charges condemned by the West as politically motivated.

The accord would bring Ukraine into the union’s free-trade area which includes non-EU nations such as Norway and Switzerland.
