KIEV, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The press service of the Ukrainian government refuted on Tuesday reports by some media outlets which said Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov, currently in Moscow, was planning to sign about 60 Customs Union-related agreements.
The Customs Union brings together Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. “This statement is a hundred percent misinformation of the society,” the press service stressed. Azarov arrived in Russia on Tuesday for a one-day visit to attend a session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council at the level of the heads of state. From May 2014, Ukraine takes part in its session as observer.
“Ukraine will continue work towards restoration of a normal trade-economic regime with the Customs Union member countries,” the press service said.
