For the Ukrainian economy, it is very important to restore entry into the Russian market. And also the EU market is important. This was stated by the co-chairman of "The Opposition Platform - For Life" party Yuriy Boyko on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Both the Russian and the EU markets are important for us, and perhaps the most effective mechanism will be - in a short time, after military operations in Donbas, to start rebuilding the economy, what we did when we went to negotiations in the Russian Federation. A joint signing of the Russian Federation and the EU association agreement with us would be a real way out to restore both markets," he said.
Boyko stressed that today the Russian Federation has more than 200 billion goods turnover with the EU - "almost six times more than we have." "And we need to increase the supply of goods in the EU, but at the same time it is very important to restore the Russian market, since we practically lost it, and therefore negotiated to return our goods to the Russian market. Traditional goods that have been present there for decades were consumed. And today, as a result of restrictions, they have been stopped, "said the MP.
