Comment of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on the preliminary results of the referendum in the Netherlands on the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU

I would like to remind that the true goal of the organizers of this referendum is not the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU. This is an attack on the unity of Europe, attack on the spread of European values. The discussion on the eve of the referendum is the evidence of that.

I am grateful to everyone who voted “for”, to hundreds of thousands of supporters of Ukraine. I am grateful to everyone who took part in the promotion of Ukraine in the Netherlands: politicians, volunteers, prominent athletes and cultural figure.

However, I would like to emphasize that this referendum has an exclusively consultative nature under the Constitution and legislation of the Netherlands. Now, the ball is in the court of the Dutch Government and Parliament.

I am confident that this event is not a strategic obstacle for Ukraine on the path to Europe. I would like to emphasize that Ukraine will keep on implementing the Association Agreement and ensure the establishment of DCFTA with the European Union, for it is a way to modernize Ukraine and reinforce its independence.

We will not turn off the road of European integration. Ukraine and freedom cannot be stopped.
