KIEV, August 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian economy’s losses after destabilization of trade relations with Russia are higher than the ones sustained by the latter, ex-economy minister of Ukraine Viktor Suslov said on Saturday.

Ukraine’s trade volume with the EU member-states is greater than with Russia but it also declined by nearly 15% in the first half of the year, Suslov said. "It is falling in the last two years, rather than growing. It declines even more in respect of Russia," he said.
