Thus, the purchase of 2-year Ukrainian bonds by Russia (in 2013-2014, for 15 billion USD, 5% coupon rate per annum) will let Ukraine get rid of all debts in foreign currency for the next year, whereas arrangement and approval of numerous joint projects will ensure hundreds of thousands of jobs for Ukrainians. In total, 14 cooperation agreements were signed during the visit.

Reaching of new price agreement on Russian gas which is now cheaper by nearly 140 USD speaks about the new stage in development of relations between Ukraine and Russia.
From Jan. 1, 2014, Ukraine will buy Russian gas for economically reasonable price. It opens the opportunities for development of Ukrainian industry, energy sector, and housing-communal services, which will ensure restoration of economic growth, while using the obtained resources for modernization. Savings due to new price (268.5 USD per 1 cu m of Russian gas) will amount to 7 billion USD, and give an additional boost to development of Ukraine.

Also, in the near future, all trade-economic restrictions will be lifted, which will significantly increase the scope of trade. Ukrainian economy gets a chance to return the recovery level of 2011.
Experts note that the agreement also opens for Kiev the access to agreements with International Monetary Fund (IMF); after all, it is not necessary to make concessions to international financial organization following the receipt of significant currency grants. There is no reason to raise the gas price for population.

According to Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, another agreement which is vital to Ukrainian industry, primarily, high-tech, knowledge-intensive sectors, was signed, an agreement for development of industrial cooperation and joint work in key sectors of economy.
