Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko says he will present a broad plan of reforms later today that would allow Ukraine to apply for membership of the European Union in six years.
Speaking to the country's judiciary, Poroshenko said the plan, "Strategy-2020," included some 60 social and economic reforms and programs.
Poroshenko signed a key trade and economic relations portion of an Association Agreement with the EU in Brussels on June 27. It provides for the creation of a Deep and Comprehensive Free-Trade Area (DCFTA) and closer economic integration.
Ukraine's parliament ratified the agreement on September 16.
However, the implementation of the trade part of the agreement has been delayed until January 2016 to appease Russia, which says the pact will hurt its markets.
