Summary

It was Ukraine’s ideologically driven choice to sever all ties with Moscow. As a result of signing a free trade agreement with the EU, Ukraine also lost its preferential access to its largest market, Russia.

Ukraine did not chose to sever all ties, Russia unilaterally decided to exclude Ukraine from a free trade bloc of former Soviet states (CIS Free Trade Agreement) starting on the 1 January 2016. As there is no incompatibility between the DCFTA and free trade with Russia, it was a political decision from Moscow to abandon the free trade agreement that existed between Russia and Ukraine.
