Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova look to EU future with accords

Georgia's Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, Moldovan Prime Minister Iurie Leanca and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko attend the second day of the EU summit on June 27, 2014 in BrusselsEuropean Union leaders sign historic association accords Friday with Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova as the three Soviet-era republics look to a future in Europe rather than with their old masters in Moscow.
