E-000800/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-000800/2018

Ukraine is a priority partner for the EU, also within the Eastern Partnership. The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement that entered into force on 1 September 2017, following the December 2016 decision by the EU Heads of State or Government(1), is the main tool for bringing Ukraine and the EU closer together: it promotes deeper political ties, stronger economic links and the respect for common values.

The 2017 Joint Declaration of the Eastern Partnership Summit(2) reaffirmed the sovereign right of each partner to choose the level of ambition and the goals to which it aspires in its relations with the EU. The scope and depth of cooperation are determined by the EU's and partners' ambitions and needs, as well as the pace and quality of reforms.

The Commission does not have any further information about possible intentions by the Ukrainian authorities to hold a referendum beyond the public announcements referred to by the Honourable Member.
