President Viktor Yanukovych to discuss Ukraine's EU entry bid in Brussels.

By bne IntelliNews September 8, 2010
President Viktor Yanukovych will visit the European Union's headquarters in Brussels on September 13 as part of the country's euro-integration bid, a Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman said. Ever since replacing pro-Western Viktor Yushchenko as president in February, Yanukovych has made "euro-integration" a priority. He has also however vowed to stay out of Western military blocs. Yanukovych wants Ukraine to be an EU associate member before the year is out. Experts say though that Ukraine is unlikely to achieve this ambition in the next two years. Yanukovych and EU officials will discuss a range of issues including the speeding up of the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association agreement, the creation of a free trade zone and visa-free travel between the EU and Ukraine, Oleh Voloshin said.
