Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova Sign Trade Deals with the European Union
Ukraine has signed a major trade
deal with the European Union, the rejection of which by the prior authoritarian
pro-Russian government, led to its overthrow.
The E.U. also signed deals with Georgia
and Moldova, which, like Ukraine, have
been menaced by Russian imperialism. With
this deal, these three former SovietRepublics demonstrate their interest in integration
with Europe and the West, instead of Russia. The economic benefits to Ukraine in particular will help its economy and,
in turn, its government’s fiscal problems, which will help it to emerge more
fully from dependence on Russia.
