Ukraine, EU sign historic trade and economic pact
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed up to a trade and economic pact with the European Union, saying it may be the "most important day" for his country since it became independent from the Soviet Union.


The European Union signed similar association agreements with two other former Soviet republics, Moldova and Georgia. Businesses in the three countries whose goods and practices meet EU standards will be able to trade freely in any EU country without tariffs or restrictions. (AP)
