The program was adopted on July 7, 2011, and envisaged cooperation in a number of fields in economy, trade, transportation, tourism and border.

Earlier, the Ukrainian foreign ministry drafted several scenarios for suspending the document, in particular, it was supposed that the program will be denounced partially.

Last year, despite the sanctions, Russia sold to Ukraine goods worth $7.2bn, which is by 139.9% more than in 2016. At the same time, Ukraine’s share in Russia’s trade turnover did not change in 2017 (2.2%).
