NOVO-OGAREVO, September 30. /TASS/. Ukraine’s unfriendly steps in the sphere of aviation make prospects vague for settling issues in the framework of preparations for implementation of the economic part of Ukraine-EU Association Agreement, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
"All this makes chances vague to agree on those issues that we discussed in our dialogue with the European Commission and Ukraine," Medvedev said adding he means "unfriendly steps that are in fact aimed against Ukrainian citizens."
The participants in the tripartite talks in Brussels on September 12, 2014 reached an agreement to postpone the entry into force of the EU Association Agreement with Ukraine until early 2016. Russia opposed the initial version of the agreement, as liberalization of trade between Ukraine and the European Union could adversely affect Russia’s foreign trade due to the fact that Ukraine, planning to enter the EU free trade area (FTA), is also member of the CIS free trade zone.
Moscow says if Kiev violates the September agreements Russia will apply to Ukraine the most favoured regime instead a more liberal regime of movement of goods within the CIS free trade area, or use other protective measures.
