Foreign Policy: Russia is an important player in Syria and Washington is obliged to listen to it.
Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA): Ukraine was deceived by the EU. For the exports of some foodstuff from Ukraine there are catastropfically low quotas. This DCFTA is working only in one way, for the EU exports to Ukraine.
98 per cent of Ukrainian export to the EU is duty-free, the quotas concern a minority of Ukrainian export. It is possible to export above the quotas. No one forced Ukraine into DCFTA.
