Tuesday 12 April the final results will be announced, but it is clear that ratification cannot just proceed as if nothing happened. The government will now deliberate on the outcome and consult with the Dutch parliament. Subsequently, the Dutch government will also speak to EU-partners and the government of Ukraine. This process will take time to be able to reach a solution that is acceptable to all parties.
