Ukraine Behind Schedule Of Implementation Of Ukraine - European Union Association Agreement

Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze states that Ukraine falls behind the schedule of implementation of the Ukraine - European Union Association Agreement.

She said this at the Wednesday meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Despite all out achievements, we are falling behind the schedule of implementation of the Agreement. That lagging is considerable. In September 2016, Ukraine implemented only 26 of expected 130 acts of the EU law into its legislation," the vice prime minister said.

Klympush-Tsyntsadze noted that bringing terms of the Ukrainian legislation in line with the legislation of the European Union has not taken place in either sector.

At that, she said that in 2015, the bills comprehensively altering the customs legislation based on the EU Customs Code terms had to be submitted for consideration of the Verkhovna Rada.

Klympush-Tsyntsadze also noted that Ukraine had to approve the national strategy for waste handling in 2016.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on May 30, the Senate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands ratified the Ukraine - European Union Association Agreement.

Therefore, all the EU member countries have already ratified the Agreement.
