NIZNY NOVGOROD, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine will realize what the real barriers are if it attempts to sell its products to the European Union, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said here on Tuesday after the talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Konstantin Grishchenko.
"In order to understand what real barriers are, try to sell sausage to the EU market," Lavrov advised. At the same time, he said, "We do not only eat Ukrainian sausage, but also take it when we go to pay a visit as guests."
Grishchenko noted that when he was a Ukrainian ambassador he always bought Ukrainian sausage in Moscow and after Swiss cheese always preferred Ukrainian cheese. "Let us not create artificial problems for what can become a basis for a common banquet and relations on the whole," he said.
According to both ministers, Russia and Ukraine failed to agree on gas and cheese issues, but they hope the sides will soon reach an agreement and overcome the problems.
