The Prime Minister Shmygal told reporters last week that Russia-Ukraine trade dropped by nearly 84% over the last six years.

Two-way trade dropped from $37 billion in 2014 to $7 billion last year. “Trade turnover between Russia and Ukraine is gradually declining,” he said at a joint press conference with visiting European Commission Vice President Maroš Šefčovič. “At the same time, the volume of trade [with] Europe has grown to over 40%, which means it has grown by more than fivefold.”
