Kyiv in talks with UK on trade, economic relations after Brexit - envoy

Before leaving the EU, London will be a full participant of the Association Agreement with Ukraine.

Ukraine has begun negotiations with the UK on the future of trade and economic relations between the two countries after the UK exit from the EU.

"We have already raised an issue concerning the beginning of discussion about new legal frameworks which will regulate our trade and economic relations after Brexit," Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK Natalia Galibarenko said in an exclusive interview with LB.ua on 9 January.

She recalled that the negotiations on the terms of the UK withdrawal from the EU would begin in March this year.

"But even so, up to the moment the UK leaves the EU it will be a full-fledged participant of all the effective agreements within the EU, including the Association Agreement with Ukraine," Galibarenko said.
