Ukraine is not a member state of the EU. However in 2014 the EU and Ukraine signed an Association Agreement aiming at political association and economic integration. The road to joining the Association Agreement was controversial. At first the former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych had urged the Ukrainian parliament to adopt laws so that Ukraine could join the Association Agreement, but later Yanukovych and the Ukrainian government suspended preparations for signing the association agreement. The decision to put off signing the Association Agreement led to protests and the Ukrainian parliament removed Yanukovych and his government in February 2014. Since then Ukraine is in turmoil because of the 2014 Crimean crisis and the 2014 pro-Russian conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement replaced the EU-Ukraine Partnership and Cooperation Agreement as the basis and framework for EU-Ukraine relations.
