The parliament will vote on the Association Agreement with Ukraine, aimed at improving ties between the EU and its eastern neighbour.
MEPs will also debate the on-going situation in Ukraine following the announcement of a ceasefire by pro-Russian rebels on the 5th September.
ECR foreign affairs spokesman Charles Tannock has been a long-standing friend of Ukraine who believes the EU should take firm action to ensure her territorial integrity is restored, and to replace aggression with dialogue.
