Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych has said this during the meeting with Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Dec.17, KyivPost reports.
"It [the situation in trade] currently requires urgent intervention. I think that in the short term we will have to coordinate this work not only between our two countries - Russia and Ukraine, but also with other CIS countries, in order to ensure that a free trade area could work in full," he said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He noted that Ukrainian enterprises are in a difficult economic situation and had started losing the volume of trade.
