KIEV, October 28 (Itar-Tass) — The agreement on the free trade area with the CIS that Ukraine has signed brings the country closer to the Customs Union, Social Policies Minister Sergei Tigipko said on Friday.

‘It goes without saying the zone of free trade brings us far closer,” he said on the Ekho Moskvy radio station.

“Ukraine has always been very emotional about the Customs Union, about how supra-state structures will be built. This loss of independence to a certain extent creates problems,” Tigipko said.

Also, for politicians this would be a hard decision to make, because “if one takes at the public opinion, it is more in favor of Ukraine’s European integration than integration with Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.”

Earlier, Tigipko did not rule out the possibility Ukraine might agree to enter the Customs Union.
