It is time to return to cooperation with reliable partners of Ukraine, leader of Ukrainian choice.

In the European Union, requests and requirements of Ukraine… carefully listen and take note. Commented on the question of increasing the EU quota for Ukrainian business leader of the public movement “the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk. He recalled that if initially it was about the possibility of increasing quotas for wheat by 100 thousand tons per year, now only 65 thousand tons.

“For tomatoes promised increase of 5 thousand tons, and now is 3 tons, etc. and Urea is removed from the list – the expansion of the quota it is not even considered. That is, if these are, so to say, additional “benefits” and will end up granted to Kiev, they will be so small that is unlikely to have a positive impact on the Ukrainian economy”, – said Medvedchuk.

In his opinion, now the majority of Ukrainians understand that the idea of an economic breakthrough due to economic integration with the EU was a utopian.

“And so today, for Ukraine it is critical to run the economy, to secure orders of industrial enterprises to increase exports of products with high added value, create jobs… But this is possible only under condition of return to our producers to the markets of CIS and Russia, the development of trade-economic cooperation with our truly tested strategic partners”, – said Medvedchuk.

We will remind, today the European Parliament has supported the decision to impose temporary trade preferences for Ukraine, it must now be approved by the EU Council.
