During the next week's EU-Ukraine summit, the sides will discuss the update of duty tariffs and quotes and Europe's energy security. Prime Minister Denys Shmygal reported that at the government session. 

"The EU-Ukraine summit will take place next week. We plan to start talking about duty tariffs and quotes, about Europe's energy security, about common priorities in the work for the next five years", the head of the Ukrainian government said.

According to him, there are some documents in Ukraine for cooperation with European partners.

"First of all, the draft of the president's decree will be approved; it will let Ukraine and the EU sign the agreement on Ukraine's participation in the European program of scientific studies and innovations called "Horizon Europe". Participation in this program is about cooperation in all scientific areas from medicine to space. These are extra financial opportunities for our scientific institutions and experience exchange for our researchers. We also plan to sign the deal on Ukraine's participation in the Euratom program, which concerns research and studies in the area of nuclear energy", Shmygal said.
