Ukrainian authorities will cooperate with the newly appointed Special Representative of the President of Russia on the development of trade and economic relations with Ukraine, but, primarily, in the direction of removal of trade barriers. Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Natalia Mykolska said this (Interfax Ukraine).
"We will work with him only on the removal of trade restrictions which exist in the territory of the Russian Federation concerning the Ukrainian goods", she told reporters on Thursday.
According to Mykolska, the appointment of the Russian President’s special representative will not stop the process of Ukraine’s appealing against trade restrictions imposed by the Russian side in the World Trade Organization.
"If Dmitriy Livanov contacts us, perhaps, we will talk with him about these issues", she said.
