Key moments

Everything that is happening right now in Europe is a clear demonstration of how any slowing of the integration processes, or delays in making important decisions on integration, can turn into a severe crisis.
Tatiana Valovaya
We are not exploiting the advantages we gain by participating in integrative associations, such as the CIS, EurAsEC, the Union of Russia and Belarus. We share a common language in law; we have common legal concepts; we have common legal mechanisms – but these are not applied, and, by acceding to the WTO, we will finally be able to tap in to this potential and make broader use of it.
