Ukraine and the European Union: Integration Processes and Prospects
Valeriy Khoroshkovskyi, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine
Ukraine’s EU integration progress appears stalled following the result of Yulia Tymoshenko’s trial in October 2011, and other perceived democratic backsteps. The Ukrainian government continues to tread a fine line between encouraging signs from the EU - such as the initialling of the Association Agreement on 30 March - and strong overtures from Russia to join the Eurasian Customs Union. Valeriy Khoroshkovskyi will discuss the possible future developments in Ukraine’s relations with the EU.
