"There can be investments, there can be cooperating, the can be kind of exporting of knowledge, but the main reason I want this agreement coming is for the people of Ukraine. The people of Ukraine, they fought for this vision, it's a moral support, and it's a real support", said Rik Grashoff, Member of Dutch parliament from Greenleft party, on why he supports the association, Ukraine Today reported.

Rik Grashoff also says he saw a lot of progress in reforms in Ukraine: "We learned that Ukraine is taking more measures on anti-corruption that even could think of, so I'm even more convinced of this agreement with European Union."
