Ukraine cannot join the Customs Union, as it is already a member of WTO, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said at an open lecture held today for students of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

“In order to join the Customs Union it is necessary to review all agreements with members of the WTO. The cooperation of Ukraine and the Customs Union is possible exclusively in the format "3+1", Azarov noted.

According to the Head of Government, Ukraine considers it important to cooperate with the Russian Feeration and Customs Union, and Ukraine considers it beneficial for both sides to make separate agreements with Customs union countries remaining a member of the World Trade Organization.

“The President of Ukraine has offered the cooperation formula in the format “3+1” and we can start consideration of those agreements, signed within the limits of Customs Union," Mykola Azarov emphasized.
