KIEV, July 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada speaker has said the parliament will immediately consider the ratification of the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement after the document is submitted.
“As soon as the president submits it [the Association Agreement], we’ll immediately discuss it,” Oleksandr Turchynov said on Wednesday.
Member of the Batkivshchyna party, Hryhoriy Nemyria, said the parliament had registered a draft address to President Petro Poroshenko to ask him to submit the document for ratification.
The previous president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, suspended the signing of the association deal with the EU in November 2013 to study the agreement more thoroughly.
His decision triggered anti-government protests that often turned violent and eventually resulted in a coup in February. New people were brought to power amid ultranationalist rhetoric that could be heard from representatives of the junta.Instability embraced Ukraine after the coup. Yanukovych had to leave Ukraine for Russia for security reasons in late February.
Western-leaning billionaire businessman and politician Petro Poroshenko won the May 25 early presidential election in Ukraine set by the provisional Kiev authorities propelled to power during the February coup. He was sworn in and took office June 7.
Poroshenko, dubbed “the chocolate king” because his structures control Ukraine’s Roshen confectionery manufacturer, earlier told media he had funded anti-government protests that led to February's coup.
