To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the EU's Association Agreement with Ukraine on the prospects for economic growth in that country.

The UK continues to support the full application of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, which creates the conditions for closer relations between the EU and Ukraine and enables Ukraine to benefit from trade access to the EU, technical assistance and regular political dialogues.

We continue to give our unreserved support to the full provisional application of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) which began on 1 January 2016. This includes work to support Ukraine against the punitive trade restrictions that Russia has disappointingly imposed in reaction to the DCFTA.
