“Let’s negotiate. We will not change the agreement and the conditions
of its implementation, I mean the transitional provisions, let’s
formulate them in such a way so that they should be favorable for us,”
the government’s press service quoted the prime minister as saying at a
meeting with representatives of the agribusiness.

Azarov said that Kyiv considered the introduction of export quotas
for sugar and the abolition of duties on sunflower seeds to be
discriminatory. “As long as we do not upgrade all of our oil extraction
plants, we will not cancel the duty on sunflower seeds,” the premier
said.

The prime minister explained the initialing of the agreement on
association and free trade area with the EU a year and a half ago by the
fact that Ukraine’s economy was then on the rise and there were no
artificially created trade problems with Russia.
