    Ukraine has already fulfilled more than 70% of its obligations under the Association Agreement with the European Union. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna during the 24th EU-Ukraine Summit held in Kyiv on February 3.

    The Deputy Prime Minister drew attention to the scope of work done by all branches of the Ukrainian Government since Ukraine was granted the EU candidate status.

    “In the context of the full-scale war of the russian federation against Ukraine, we pursued the process of adapting Ukrainian legislation to the European one. We have increased progress in implementation of the Association Agreement by 9% compared to 2021,” Olha Stefanishyna said.

    According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the intellectual property sector has become the leader in fulfilling obligations under the Association Agreement. Progress in this area has increased by 33%. Significant progress has also been achieved in the areas of energy, environment, agriculture, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and customs.

    Overall, during the period of implementation of the Agreement, Ukraine has achieved 90% progress in seven areas. These are justice, freedom, security, political dialogue, national security and defense, statistics, and public procurement.

    The Deputy Prime Minister noted that, based on the report provided by the European Commission, Ukraine would conduct a self-screening analysis of the status of implementation of Ukrainian legislation in line with the EU acquis. Next, a National Program for the adaptation of Ukrainian legislation to the EU acquis will be developed.

    The final statement following the Summit said that “the EU will provide technical support to the Government in this process.”
