You're reading: Teixeira: Ukraine’s EU integration suspended, association agreement unlikely to be signed
on social media

“I think that in the current circumstances it will be very difficult to sign the association agreement. I would like to remind you that the signing of this agreement requires the consent of all EU countries. But many EU countries now don’t want to sign this document in view of the current situation in Ukraine,” the diplomat said in an exclusive interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

Teixeira noted that the EU expected and expects Ukraine to resolve the situation with politically motivated criminal cases, hold fair elections, and introduce reforms.

“The EU should see that Ukraine is really conducting the necessary reforms. However, now we see no progress in the fulfillment of these conditions. The issues that are of concern to the EU, particularly the electoral law and the non-participation of opposition leaders in the elections, remain relevant, but the decision on this matter will be taken at a meeting of the EU Council of Ministers,” the ambassador said.
