Russia will continue making efforts to iron out existing disputes in its trade relations with the European Union and Ukraine, Russian news agencies quoted President Vladimir Putin as saying on Tuesday.
“I think we will return to these issues more than once. We want to normalise relations (in trade) with our partners – with Ukraine and with the European Union,” Interfax news agency quoted Putin as saying.
Last week Putin ordered his government officials to suspend Russia’s free trade zone with Ukraine from Jan. 1 of next year, citing “extraordinary circumstances affecting the interests and economic security” of Russia.
