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 Soviet Republics 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.
