In view of the fluid situation regarding compliance with the conditions necessary for the signature of the association agreement between the European Union, its member states and Ukraine, including the deep and comprehensive free trade area, this is an interim statement of our mission and not the final report.
We have just returned from the 26th mission visit to Ukraine. We note that considerable progress has been made in seeking to fulfill the aforementioned conditions. However, we regret to observe that at this time we are not yet in the position to report full compliance.
As things currently stand, two specific proposals and one potential proposal for the laws required to achieve compliance are on the agenda of the Verkhovna Rada.
