With this action, Ukraine has missed a great opportunity to integrate with Europe and modernize its state. The association agreement is not permanently dead, but presumably a change in Ukrainian leadership will be necessary to revive it.

The Ukrainian parliament this week had been scheduled to adopt the last three laws out of a score required by the European Union to qualify for signature. It did enact the law on the electoral system, but it has not adopted the law on the prosecutor’s office and on permission for former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to leave prison and go abroad for needed surgery, which the European Union had indicated was a prerequisite for Ukraine’s association. Now the parliamentary session has been called off.
