You're reading: Ukraine – European Union: article by 5 European foreign ministers

In the article, the authors note that they see themselves as Ukraine’s allies and are convinced that closer political and economic ties, as well as people-to-people contacts, between the EU and Ukraine offer huge benefits for both partners.

They note that while the EU and Ukraine started negotiations five years ago on a groundbreaking new agreement with the aim of fostering Ukraine’s political association and economic integration with the EU, the association process has now, in effect, been blocked by Ukraine’s actions.

The authors note growing concerns about the state of democracy in Ukraine and recent developments which are incompatible with Ukraine’s European choice, including trials which “bear the marks of politically motivated and selective justice”.
