KIEV, August 25. /TASS/. Ukraine is ready to cooperate with the new Special Envoy of the Russian President for Trade and Economic Relations with Ukraine, Dmitry Livanov.
"First and foremost, we intend to work with him on the issue of Russian-imposed restrictions", the press service of the Ukrainian Ministry of Economic Development and Trade told TASS, citing Vice-Minister, Ukrainian Trade Representative, Natalia Mikolskaya.
However, the ministry’s source added that Livanov’s appointment would not stop Ukraine from turning to the WTO in order to challenge restrictions imposed on Ukrainian goods.
According to Mikolskaya, if Livanov "makes contact", then Ukraine "will speak to him first about these issues".
On August 20, Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed Dmitry Livanov to be the Special Envoy for Trade and Economic Relations with Ukraine.
Mikhail Zurabov had served in that position until August 2016, when he stepped down from the post after being relieved of his duties as Russian ambassador.
