Тема: Україна та ЄС.

In February 2005, the joint European Union-Ukraine plan of action for 2005-2007 was adopted.

An organic part of this process is the strategy for Ukrainian integration with the European Union and, consequently, the European Union-Ukraine plans of action.

For both objective and subjective reasons, all the elements of interaction between Ukraine and the European Union are currently characterized by a considerable degree of vagueness rendering it particularly difficult to forecast the specific parameters of the impact of European Union enlargement on Ukraine.

ts annual meeting every summer in Yalta has become the main high-level Ukraine-EU forum for debate and policy recommendations.

With the European Union, we are working on an action plan of reforms under the auspices of the European Neighborhood Policy, which we hope will lead to the beginning of negotiations on an E.U.-Ukraine free-trade agreement.
