The Dutch senate has voted in favor of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine. As many as 50 senators out of 75 have supported the document.

The People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, the Labor Party, the GreenLeft party, the Democrats 66 party, the Christian Union, the Reformed Political Party, the Independent Senate Group and 9 out of 12 members of the Christian Democratic Appeal party backed the agreement.

Now the document needs to be signed by King of the Netherlands Willem-Alexander, but it will only be a formality since the king does not interfere in solving political issues. The document will come into force after it is published in an official newspaper.
