This page highlights the key aspects of political, economic and trade relations between the European Union (EU) and Ukraine, as well as financial assistance programmes in place and the role of civil society in steering the relations into the future.
EU-Ukraine relations are set out in an Association Agreement.
The Agreement details the shared commitment of the EU and Ukraine to a close, long-term relationship based on common values, notably respect for democratic principles, rule of law, good governance, human rights and fundamental freedoms. The Agreement is designed to generate opportunities for development and prosperity throughout Ukraine and the wider region.
Ukraine is also a key partner country within the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and the Eastern Partnership, the latter involving all EU countries as well as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. Regular discussions are held on matters of mutual interest, including through EU-Ukraine Presidential Summits which are held every year.
