The process of ratification of EU-Ukraine Association Agreement will most likely be completed within several weeks with positive result. This was announced by the representative of European Union in Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli in his interview for RBC-Ukraine.

“The Lower Chamber of the Parliament of the Netherlands supported the Association Agreement with Ukraine last week. Now it’s turn for the Senate to do the same,” he said.

The elections to the Lower Chamber of the Netherlands’ Parliament will be held soon.

“I cannot say whether the election results will have some impact on this matter. We’ll wait and see. It will happen in the next few weeks, and any discussion of the issue would be speculation," Mingarelli said.

Earlier it was reported that European Parliament will vote for EU-Ukraine visa free regime on April 3-6. Ukraine could follow Georgia’s path and get the visa free regime in June.
