Special Report on EU – Ukraine relations

EurActiv, the leading online media reporting on EU affairs and policy issues, will be running special coverage, from 12 to 16 September, on EU – Ukraine relations. 

From July to August 1990, a series of events sealed the independence of Ukraine from the former Soviet Union. The 20th anniversary of Ukraine's independence coincided with a fresh gas row with Russia and a trial against former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

Meanwhile, the EU is still developing a policy stance for Ukraine, and Kyiv is doing the same for Brussels. A summit of the Eastern Partnership, the flagship EU initiative covering Ukraine and five other countries in Europe's East will take place on 29-30 September in Warsaw, under the Polish EU Presidency. 

EurActiv will look at these and other developments in an important week for Ukraine.

This Special Report is supported by the Mission of Ukraine to the EU.
