Ukraine’s signing of the Association Agreement with the European Union will close its entrance to the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with the vice Premiers today, September 9.

"I want to avoid any illusions. The situation is quite simple when signing the relevant document with the EU states on associated membership. The entrance to the Customs Union will be almost closed for our Ukrainian partners," Medvedev said.

According to him, the leaders of the European Union quite frankly speak about this as well.

The Russian Prime Minister considers that everyone, including the citizens of Ukraine, should understand this. "This is a key political choice that the leadership of Ukraine is making today," Medvedev declared.
