Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia signed deals with the European Union:

June 27, 2014

Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova have signed partnership agreements with the European Union, in a move strongly opposed by Russia.

The pact – which would bind the three countries more closely to the West both economically and politically – is at the heart of the crisis in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said making Ukraine choose between Russia and the EU would split it in two.

A ceasefire with pro-Russian rebels in east Ukraine is due to end on Friday.

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko says his country has paid “the highest possible price” to achieve the goal of a free trade agreement with the European Union — a goal reached Friday when he signed the deal at a summit in Brussels.

Earlier in the day Poroshenko called the signing “historic,” despite negative reaction from Moscow. Russia’s deputy foreign minister said Ukraine’s move is “fraught with serious consequences.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that controversy over the agreement, which led to the ouster of pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych earlier this year, has forced Ukrainians into an “artificial” choice between loyalties to Europe or to Russia. He called for a long-term ceasefire in Ukraine as a condition for talks between Ukrainian authorities and pro-Russian separatists.

Western leaders warn Putin

At the Brussels summit, EU leaders set a Monday deadline for Putin to demonstrate support for calming the unrest in Ukraine.

In a statement issued Friday, the 28 leaders called for Moscow to meet several conditions, including visibly supporting the Ukrainian government’s proposed peace plan, the French news agency AFP reported. Ukraine’s government also should be granted oversight of three major border checkpoints, Reuters reported.

Two other terms according to the Associated Press, include setting up a means of verifying the cease-fire and securing the release of all captives.

If Putin fails to meet those conditions, Russia could face “further significant restrictive measures,” the statement said, according to AFP.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly has warned Putin that the EU will consider a new round of sanctions against Moscow if it doesn’t cooperate.

The Obama administration says it also is ready to impose new sanctions if Moscow fails to take action to de-escalate the crisis in eastern Ukraine. The administration said it has delayed implementation as it presses for unified support from European and U.S. manufacturers for the measures.

June 27, 2014

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Friday signed a broad deal with the European Union covering closer trade and political ties despite objections from Russia, which also warned that the deal will have grave consequences…

Poroshenko said the agreement — which allows for free trade within the EU as well as for key business-related reforms for Kiev — may be the “most important day” for his country since it became independent from the Soviet Union.”It’s absolutely a new perspective for my country,” Poroshenko said.

The EU’s deal with Ukraine is especially sensitive now as it comes at a time when a fragile cease-fire between the Ukrainian government and pro-Russia separatists is due to end, and as Europe’s top diplomats decide whether to impose fresh economic sanctions on Russia.

Georgia and Moldova also signed association agreements with the EU on Friday in a move that is opposed by Russia…

European Council President Herman van Rompuy described the signings as a great day for Europe.

“The EU stands by your side, today more than ever before,” he said. “There is nothing in these agreements or in the European Union’s approach that might harm Russia in any way.”

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for President Vladimir Putin, told Russian news agencies that the Kremlin would respond to the EU-Ukraine accord “as soon as negative consequences arise for the economy.”

The European Union wants to grow and expand and Russia in not pleased.  Russia has wanted Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia to be part of its Eurasian Union, which officially begins on January 1, 2015.  While many in Eastern Ukraine, parts of Moldova, and parts of Georgia would prefer to be part the Eurasian Union, for many reasons, others prefer closer ties with the European Union.

Moldova is currently considered the poorest nation in Europe and hopes the deal with the EU will assist it financially.  However, as it is dependent upon Russia for energy and a significant amount of its trade, it must tread lightly.  It is also possible that Moldova will split and/or later become part of the Eurasian Union if it gets enough pressure from Russia and/or the deal with the EU does not work out as well as hoped.  The same basically goes for Georgia, except the hostilities toward Russia seem to be higher in Georgia.

That being said, Georgia is a country that is not connected to the European Union via land.  Georgia is it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan.

However, Georgia is south and east of the Benelux nations.

Why bring that up?

The Bible prophesied that a little horn would develop into what apparently is becoming a European entity. Actually what is now the EU began as a small organization involving three small countries located in the northern and western regions of Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, called the Benelux nations)–they then helped form the European Economic Community. Which expanded into the European Union.

Notice that, the Bible prophesied that a little horn would mainly expand South and East:

And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them. He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down. Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered (Daniel 8:9-12).

And while the above has had a past fulfillment, this prophecy seems to be dual (compare with Daniel 11:27-39). The reality is that the European Union has mainly expanded south and east of the Benelux nations. Now, approximately 500 million people are now under a new, single (though not completed united) government, called the European Union, headquartered in Brussels. Ukraine is mainly east of much of the EU–thus its geography is consistent with being part of the EU.  And Moldova and Georgia are south and east, which is also consistent.

Those groups (such as PCG and LCG) that tend to insist that the final European Beast power will only have ten or eleven nations may be caught up unexpectedly (cf. Luke 21:34) if the final Beast power has more (the European Union currently has 28 members, with at least a half-dozen more countries, like Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia with interest).  See also Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?

Not all in Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia want to be part of the European Union, some prefer to be in Russia’s upcoming Eurasian Union. Those that become disillusioned/disappointed by the EU may ultimately back out of it.

From a prophetic perspective, we appear to be seeing some separation between some of the peoples that live within the borders of Ukraine as well as Georgia and Moldova. According to Bible prophecy, those that appear to have descended from the ancient Medes will ultimately align with Russia.

This does not mean that some or all of Ukraine, etc. will not be part of the European Union, at least for a time.

The European Union has demonstrated a history and willingness to enlarge–and it is interested in Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia.  The USA keeps encouraging all of this, but this will not end well for the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39; Isaiah 10:5-11).

Russia is upset by the developments in Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia and is attempting to plan its next move.

That being said, I believe that later, even Russia will cooperate with the rising European Beast power for a time (cf. Revelation 13:4,8).  Europe is busily making trade and political deals around the world and is attempting to position itself to rise up and rival the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies.  And that final European Beast power will succeed for a time.

Yet, the time will later come when Russia and its future allies will turns against the European Beast power to destroy it (Daniel 11:44; Jeremiah 50:41-43). War is in the future for Russia as well as the European Union (and is also for the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies).

War is also in the future for Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia.  Signing those agreements with the EU today will not prevent this.
