April 6, 2016 Dutch citizens in a consultative referendum will express their opinion on the EU association agreement with Ukraine. The agreement defines the European way of reforming Ukraine and simplifies trade and economic relations between Ukraine and the EU. The results of the referendum and the implications (if most Dutch vote against) are currently difficult to predict. But no doubt in case of advantage of the association’opponents, crisis in relations between Ukraine and the EU will happen.
