Polls Open in the Netherlands in EU-Ukraine Trade Agreement Vote

Polls have opened in the Netherlands in a vote for or against the European Union’s association agreement with Ukraine, Euronews reports.

The vote is non-binding. But the government of Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who backs the deal, is already on rocky ground. Ignoring public opinion would, then, be a dicey move with elections scheduled in less than 12 months’ time.
