The actions of Russian authorities towards the Ukrainian exports are due to the fact that Russia did not expect Ukraine to come to the signing the Association Agreement with the European Union, former MP from the Party of Regions Oleksiy Plotnikov said on the air on Channel 5.

"In regard to what is going on, these are political layers indeed, they dominate the economy, and most likely Russia did not expect that it will come to the signing of the Association Agreement. When it was acknowledged that the signing would take place, the neighbor state did not expect that. And now the actions of an emergency plan are taking place – these are certain threats regarding the common customs tariff, these are other things that are unnatural for economic relations. But I hope that this situation will calm down either before the signing or after it," Plotnikov said, Interfax-Ukraine reported.
