The 16th EU-Ukraine Summit Factsheet

The 16th EU-Ukraine Summit took place in Brussels on 25 February. The Summit was hosted by Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council and José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission. Ukraine was represented by President Viktor Yanukovych. 

The Summit takes place at a defining moment in EU-Ukraine relations. On 10 December 2012 the Foreign Affairs Council adopted conclusions on a sequenced policy of engagement with Ukraine. In order for this policy to bear fruit and to enable the possible signing of the Association Agreement by the time of the November Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius, Ukraine needs to undertake determined action and show tangible progress by May at the latest in three key areas: 1) appropriate follow-up actions for the 28 October 2012 parliamentary elections; 2) addressing the issue of selective justice and preventing its recurrence; and 3) implementing the reforms set out in the jointly agreed Association Agenda.
