KIEV, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian First Vice-Premier Vitaly Yarema, who has been appointed by the Verkhovna Rada, said the government had decided to continue economic cooperation with Russia.
“Many Ukrainian enterprises manufacture products, including for Russia,” Yarema said. “If economic cooperation is stopped, Russia, as well as Ukraine, will sustain losses,” the first vice-premier said, adding “The Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council has not taken a decision to break off economic relations with Russia.”
“We hope that due to diplomatic world pressure the conflict will be settled by peaceful means. We hope that economic cooperation will be continued,” Yarema said.
He also expressed hope that relations between Ukraine and Russia “will be friendly and brotherly as it used to be”.
