KIEV, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov has issued instructions to look into problems with exporting Ukrainian goods to Russia, “to study the facts and to take proper measures to protect domestic producers,” the government’s press-service quotes Ukraine’s commissioner for cooperation with Russia, CIS and Eurasian economic community and other regional associations, Valery Muntiyan.
“If there are such issues and problems, they’ve got to be settled,” he said, adding that Ukraine’s Economic Development Ministry was monitoring the export of Ukrainian goods to Russia and actively cooperating with Russia in addressing outstanding issues.
In an interview to Forbes-Ukraine, Muntiyan, when asked about whether Ukraine might take retaliatory measures against Russia, said, ””We have the right to take them, but such issues must be addressed in a balanced fashion, within the framework of our legislation.”
“Ukraine has the right to protect the national consumer and producer from substandard goods,” he said. “If there are solid reasons, confirmed by competent Ukrainian authorities, all necessary measures will surely be taken. We are determined to safeguard the national interests of Ukraine.”
