on the Internet office stated that about this Poroshenko said during his visit to Kazakhstan. He said that Ukraine remains subject to the Treaty on the free trade area of the CIS, which clearly States the rights And obligations of the parties.
"The task remains only that all parties adhered to the agreements And taken on their own shoulders obligations when signing And ratifying the entire contract, including the sixth schedule," - said Poroshenko.
Speaking about the ongoing negotiations in the format Ukraine-EU-Russia, Poroshenko said that he hopes for the failure of the Russian capital to impose limits on Ukrainian exports." I think that the result of these agreements will be the decision of the government of the Russian Federation on the abolition of those possible restrictions to be introduced without any reference to any documents. Both Ukraine and Russia, And Kazakhstan are members of the WTO (world trade organization - ed.) And are obliged to fulfill their own shoulders obligations, " - noted the head of Ukraine.
a year earlier, Ukraine And the European Parliament ratified the Association agreement of the EU, part of which is the provision on free trade area. Russia is concerned with the introduction from 1 January 2016 in the provisions of the FTA And fears of an influx of duty free items from the EU through Ukraine.
Kiev And the EU try to come to a compromise with the Russian side. However, before the head of the Ministry of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev called a very small chance that Russia will not enter the food embargo And customs duties for Ukraine on 1 January 2016, a fresh punishment from Kiev made them completely miserable.
