MOSCOW, December 26, 23:26 /ITAR-TASS/. A three-party dialogue on trade and economic cooperation in the format Russia-Ukraine-the European Union is not only possible but rather necessary, according to Russian and Ukrainian experts who took part in a roundtable meeting dedicated to the economic situation in Ukraine and its relations with Russia. The meeting was held in Moscow on Thursday.
“From the bone of contention, Ukraine should become a bridge of cooperation,” said Ruslan Grinberg, the director of the Institute of the Economy of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a thinktank. “Our ultimate goal is to create a common space from Lisbon to Vladivostok, isn’t it?”
This opinion was shared by Ukrainian expert Oleg Ustenko of the Blazer Foundation. “The negotiating process is the only possible way out of the current situation,” he said. “Only this way we can reach a consensus.”
According to Valentin Zemolyansky, an independent Ukrainian energy expert, a promising area of cooperation between Ukraine, Russia and the European Union could be the gas transport sphere. “Ukrainian Minister of Energy Eduard Stavitsky has proposed to set up a three-party gas transport consortium, of which Russia would be a member. I do not rule out that a German company could be involved as the third participant,” he noted.
