“We want to agree with the EU on conditions for a transition period
that would help level off our trade balance,” Azarov said at a
nationwide roundtable meeting under the motto ‘Unite Ukraine’ on Friday.

“It is necessary to eliminate the obvious misbalances in the tariffs and quotas on a number of agrarian products,” Azarov said.

The government also plans to resume financing from the International
Monetary Fund (IMF), but this should be done on conditions acceptable to
Ukraine, Azarov said. “It is unacceptable to sharply increase utility
tariffs, cut social expenses, and freeze salaries and social
allowances,” Azarov said.
