The Ukrainian economy will be destroyed in the event of termination of trade relations with Russia. This broadcast channel “112 Ukraine” said the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Vadym Rabinovich.
According to him, Moscow remains the largest trading partner of Kiev, and the turnover is growing every month.
“The trade balance with Russia is growing every month for one simple reason, because a free economic zone with Europe has brought us only losses. And, if we lose here, we lose, we never find. We have absolutely zero trade balance,” said Rabinovich.
That the Ukrainian economy is in for huge damage, if Kiev will break trade relations with Russia, said earlier the former Minister of economy of Ukraine Viktor Suslov. He stressed that the termination of cooperation with Moscow in a number of industries had a negative impact on their development, particularly in aerospace and aviation.
August 13, former President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko urged to suspend trade with the “enemy.” He called Ukrainians slaves due to the fact that Kyiv continues to engage in active trade with Russia.
