And unless the participation of the presidents, which is eight times we have heard And took a radical solution, nothing but failed, " said the Savior.

It should all the calculate. We have no problem to increase the number of members, " He explained.

And here are some businessmen bring meat from Ukraine with the European brand they forgot to cut, " said the head of the Department.

in his vision, you can apply And Greek experience in tourism.
"The wallet of every Russian has lost twice (due to the appreciation of the Euro), 2 times go less tourists here. But travelers want to go to Sevan, Issyk-Kul, where all you Have to equip. And if the Greeks will come with his experience in the preparation of national products, small hotels, it is all well, " said the Director of Department of development of the integration of the Eurasian economic Commission.
