"I ask Andriy Parubiy to put the plea to the Dutch Parliament with the request to ratify the EU-Ukraine Association agreement on the Ukrainian Parliament's agenda. All the hearings have been already accomplished. The referendum that has been held in the country is not legally binding, and can be used only as recommendations for the Dutch government. We need to call on the Netherlands not to impose double standards against Ukraine", Gerashchenko said.

Recall that the Netherlands held a consultative referendum regarding the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine on April 6, 2016. 61% voted against the EU-Ukraine association.
