Primakov said the cutting by a third of the price of Russian gas for Ukraine, the purchase of Ukrainian securities to 15 billion dollars and the development of cooperation ties in industry, particularly in aircraft construction and the space industry, show the moving away from the principle of “either Ukraine chooses the association agreement with the EU or joins the Customs Union.”
