KALUGA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said after talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Nikolai Azarov on Tuesday that Russia and Ukraine would manage to work out the right algorithm after Ukraine signed an associated membership agreement with the European Union.
“We certainly talked about our future and a free trade zone treaty, which Ukraine is going to sign with the European Union because that decision will influence the Russian market. What I mean is the nullification of duties and transition to EU regulations and standards,” Medvedev said.
“Therefore, we are obliged to analyze all the risks that we and our partners may face,” he explained.
“It is natural that our colleagues in government, experts and business communities in both countries should join the process because entrepreneurs will be the first to be affected by the newly-established regime in relations between Ukraine and the European Union,” the Russian prime minister went on to say. He urged both countries to act cautiously.
“We should be guided by common interests and try to minimize problems. I hope we will be able to find the right solutions,” Medvedev emphasized.
