Activists of the Greenpeil movement with the assistance of the Telegraaf newspaper in the Netherlands insist on the conduct of a referendum on the inexpediency of Association agreement with Ukraine. The case is whether the Dutch should agree with the authorities' approval of the Association agreement.
Initiators and journalists have already managed to get over 450,000 signatures given those 300,000 needed.
Greenpeil said that the idea of such a referendum was promoted for the sake of democracy ni the Netherlands and Europe, and in order to send a message to the Hague and Brussels.
If the decision to held the referendum is taken, the Association agreement with Ukraine will be suspended automatically until the results are known. However, regardless of the results, authors of the initiative cast doubt on the necessity of such a burden for the EU.
