Ukrainian and Russian transport ministries' delegations have signed a joint protocol in Moscow after holding talks as part of a meeting of the Yushchenko-Putin Intergovernmental Commission's sub-commission on transportation.

During exchange of views with Russia's Transport Minister Igor Levitin, Ukraine's Transport and Communications Minister Mykola Rudkivsky proposed more active cooperation in the area of promotion on European markets, the Cabinet press office informed.

Among other things, they discussed creation of a "new Silk Road" for transportation of goods in special freight platforms through the territories of the two countries.

He also proposed that Russia back "flight readiness" of Russian-made aircraft in order to ensure flight safety.

Minister Rudkivsky said Ukraine considered it appropriate to simplify the procedures for crossing the Ukrainian-Russian border for trucks through mutual cancellation of permits for trucks.

Ukraine's Transport and Communications Minister Mykola Rudkivsky has proposed building a Kyiv-Moscow autobahn and a Simferopol-Moscow autobahn (via Kharkiv).

According to Mr. Rudkivskyi, Ukraine is prepared to take responsibility for construction of the Ukrainian sections of the autobahns and expects Russia to act similarly.

The relevant working groups are to submit all these proposals by December 1, 2006, so that they can be considered in-depth at the next meeting of the sub-commission on transportation, which is scheduled for early 2007.
