MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) - Trade between Russia and Ukraine should develop after Kiev signs the Association Agreement with the EU, Russian Vice-Premier Igor Shuvalov said.
“Trade between the two countries should develop, but without damage to the Russian industry,” Shuvalov said.
The Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry urged the government to improve control over customs checkpoints on the Russian-Ukrainian border due to Ukraine’s rapprochement towards the EU, the vice-premier said.
“Customs officials realise what goods should be seriously prepared. The main task is to prevent the situation like as the last summer. If there are any problems, it is necessary to hold the dialogue with the Ukrainian customs,” Shuvalov said.
In August, the Federal Customs Service started inspecting goods from Ukraine due to growing violations of customs legislation from Ukrainian transport carriers. Thus, there were big queues at customs points. Several days later Russia and Ukraine succeeded in reaching agreement to lift some restrictions.
