Igor Mityukov, Ukraine's Ambassador
to Britain, said Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych's visit to London was meant,
among other objectives, for promoting Ukraine's accedence to the WTO.
As far as
those five critical remarks which the EuroCommission aired in Brussels are
concerned, these are but too known to everybody, insignificant and virtually
done away with. As Mr Mityukov said, he sees no obstacles to resume Ukraine's
relations with the FATF.
to Igor Mityukov, Britain has intimated its positive stand on recognizing
Ukraine as a nation with a market economy.
As he said,
the Ukrainian Prime Minister's talks with British Deputy Premier John Prescott
are supposed to deal with British investments in the Ukrainian economy.
In view of
differences between Ukraine's structure of executive authority and that of
Britain, John Prescott may be regarded as Britain's official number two.
