The Netherlands is the only EU member state not to have ratified the deal following a referendum in April in which the Dutch chose not to support closer ties with Kyiv.

The association agreement, reached after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March 2014 and then backed militants fighting government troops in the east of the country, is being provisionally implemented now, but its future hinges on the Netherlands............
