Medvedchuk: Kiev should make use of experience of Armenia on the relations with the EU and the CIS


It is vital to restore trade and economic relations with the Russian Federation, to pass to creation of the free trade zone with the CIS and to deepening of cooperation in hi-tech sectors of the industry, Medvedchuk writes in the article. Ukraine needs transition to multi-vector nature policy that can be made, having used, including, experience of Armenia. About it in the article on the party website the head of political council "The oppositional platform – For life" Victor Medvedchuk wrote. "We can use successful experience of Armenia which managed to find necessary balance in trade with the EU, being at the same time since January 2, 2015 a member of the Eurasian Economic Union. So, the relations between the European Union and Armenia are under construction on the basis of the Comprehensive and expanded partner agreement between the EU and Armenia. Since January 1, 2014 Armenia takes advantages of the General system of preferences (GSP). This scheme provides to Armenia additional preferences on tariffs for export to the EU and is based on rigid criteria. At the same time membership of Armenia in the Eurasian Economic Union does not prevent operation of the Agreement on the associated membership with the EU - Yerevan uses all preferences of EEU, remaining within the Agreement on association with the European Union", - he wrote. According to Medvedchuk, cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union for Ukraine "not just favourably, and is vital". "For development of such cooperation it is necessary to change conditions of free trade from the EU to the General system of preferences (GSP) which is the system of unilateral trade preferences and reduces or eliminates tariffs for a number of export goods from developing countries on the markets of the EU. This system in the EU is applied according to Regulations of N978/2012 of the European Parliament and Council of the European Union of October 25, 2012. Under such circumstances Ukraine will be able to develop at the same time trade and economic cooperation both with the EU, and with EEU", - he writes. The head of political council "The oppositional platform – For life" believes what when forming new external economic strategy of the state has to be based on policy of multi-vector nature, import substitution and support of a national producer within development of east vector of economic integration. "First, it is necessary to reconsider conditions of participation of Ukraine in the WTO. Secondly, to cancel asymmetric (discriminatory) conditions of the free trade zone with the European Union and to pass to the General system of preferences (GSP). Ukraine has to become the equivalent partner of the European Union, but not a raw appendage which is now. Thirdly, it is obvious that all parties lose from infinite sanctions wars, and therefore mutual cancellation of sanctions and countersanctions is necessary. Besides, it is vital to restore the destroyed trade and economic relations with the Russian Federation, to pass to creation of the free trade zone with the CIS countries and to deepening of trade and economic cooperation in hi-tech sectors of the industry (an avia - ра
