You're reading: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

President Viktor Yanukovych evidently
told European Union Commissioner Stefan Fuele that he has no plan of signing
the association agreement in Vilnius, Lithuania, during the Nov. 28-29 summit,
according to a diplomatic source in Kyiv. 

Another source says Foreign Minister
Leonid Kozhara told something similar to Jan Tombinski, the EU ambassador in
Ukraine. Yet other sources are reporting other versions, but a similar essence. 

Coupled with the clear unwillingness of
the pro-presidential forces in parliament to move on laws that open the door
for closer European integration, a recent change in rhetoric to pro-Russian and
many more minor distress signals, it seems that chances of signing are minuscule.
