Ukraine and the Association Agreement: stuck in a traffic jam?

In 2017, Ukraine continued to demonstrate progress in the implementation of the EU acquis and the provisions of the Association Agreement. Thus, most of the systemic issues were subject to legislative approval – laws were adopted on the electricity market, on environmental impact assessments, and on a package of energy-efficiency measures. The issue of the minimum reserves of oil and oil products, the issue of transparency in extractive industries, a strategic environmental assessment, as well as the new wording of the Subsoil Code were unchanged with regards to legislation.
