Russia is ready to negotiate on cooperation between Ukraine and the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan at the expert level.

This is said in the annual address of President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly of Russia.

"Since May this year, Ukraine has expressed its willingness to attend all meetings of the troika as an observer, to participate in discussions. Earlier, Ukraine repeatedly stated its interest in joining the separate agreements of the Customs Union. We do not impose anything, but if our friends have a desire to work together, we are committed to continuing this work at the expert level," Putin said.

Russian President stressed that the integration project is based on equality, and the real economic interests.

According to Putin, the Eurasian integration will proceed without opposition to other integration projects, including that of the European Union.
