Ukraine has no choice at this late stage but to sign the AA and DCFTA with the EU later this month. It is the only way forward for the country. Help from the IMF will be sure to follow. BUT.....if for some strange reason the President of Ukraine fails to ensure that former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is released from prison and given a FULL pardon, then do not be surprised if the EU decide not to go along with signing any agreements.
The president, the government, members of parliament and the people of Ukraine need to understand that Yulia Tymoshenko MUST be released without any conditions being attached.
