In early October it was announced that a Union of European States did not want to fulfill the request of the Netherlands to amend the agreement on Association with Ukraine. Rutte " wished to add a short PostScript to the agreement, in which to talk about the fact that the document relates only to trade and cooperation and not of Ukraine opens the way to the EU ". However, none of the European partners did not support this initiative. The Advisory referendum on the issue of ratification of the Treaty on the unity between the EU and Ukraine was held in the Netherlands April 6. In the process, 61% came to the polls voted against the ratification of the document. Despite the results of the vote of the people, the Dutch government did not immediately make a decision and to refuse ratification. Instead Rutte has set a target to discuss with European colleagues and try to adjust to the contract.
