Lithuania gives Ukraine extra time to meet EU demands

Ukraine has six months to meet EU terms for signing the association agreement instead of a May deadline the 27-nation bloc has set for improving its judiciary and electoral system, according to the Lithuanian foreign minister Linas Linkevičius.

 “We will keep this pressure until the last moment … If they will be ready, we will be ready and we hope, we still believe, that it’s doable to sign the association agreement by the summit in Vilnius,” Linkevičius said in a Bloomberg interview.

 “We have plenty of time,” Linkevičius said in the interview. “We will be ready to catch up if they will be ready.”
