Today the Ukrainian Parliament ratified the EU Association Agreement, nearly three months after it was signed by President Poroshenko. The European Parliament ratified it at almost the same time. A key goal of Maidan has been achieved.
Putin must be fuming. He pressured the previous president to reject the agreement, which led to the Maidan protests and a fundamental psychological change among Ukrainians. Even his occupation of Crimea and war in Donbas could not stop it.
