You're reading: European Commission opens path to association with Ukraine, expects further progress

Signature of Association Agreement with the EU will depend on Ukraine’s performance

Without prejudice to a future
political decision on possible signature, the Commission adopted today
the proposals for Council Decisions on (i) the signing and provisional
application as well as (ii) the conclusion of the EU-Ukraine Association
Agreement, which will be transmitted to the Council for further
processing. The Commission accompanied the two proposals with a
political statement (see below).

With today’s decision, the EU is
taking a necessary preparatory step in order to be technically ready for
the possible signing of the Association Agreement (including its Deep
and Comprehensive Free Trade Area – DCFTA) at the Eastern Partnership
Summit in Vilnius in six months from now. The EU has underlined that it
will only sign if Ukraine creates the necessary political circumstances.
