Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko is due to sign a political and trade accord with the European Union.
The Association Agreement - as it is known - will open up European and Ukrainian markets to each other over the next decade - and see Ukraine adopt EU standards on everything from food additives to copyright protection.
Many see the trade-agreement as a historic shift for Ukraine - away from Russia and towards the West.
David Stern reports from Kiev on how the deal could help businesses in the country.
