“We plan to start talks with Russia about lifting transit restrictions so that we can have access to Central Asian gas as to the alternative. The second matter is the lifting of export duties, especially those set by Russia on oil,” he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Monday.

Lifting export duties would enable Ukraine to re-open the refineries that are currently idle, he said.

The agreement on free trade allows for such talks to start six months after it comes into force. The agreement enters into force 30 days after the depository receives a third notification of ratification. On July 30, Ukraine was the third country to ratify the document, after Belarus and Russia.
