The decision of the Government of Ukraine to break off the program of economic cooperation with the Russian Federation launched in 2011 will only bring Ukraine an advantage, balance our export policy and, all in all, make Ukraine stronger. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman stressed on air of one of the national TV channels.
"It was Russia that embarked on inapplicable measures - the war in Donbas, economic pressure. Therefore, we had to take such a decision", the Head of Government said, "Our exports to Europe and Asia are growing. We are only getting stronger through the breach."
At that, the Prime Minister emphasized that it is crucial to build production facilities in Ukraine, to develop the domestic product. "I am satisfied that we have ceased to depend on Russia. We possess an enormous potential", added Volodymyr Groysman.
