Key moments

Eurasian Economic Union can and must become a political partner for the EU.
Eckhard Cordes
It is fundamentally important to agree to the macroeconomic indicators (within the EEU) and adhere to them to create a stable environment, especially for businesses.
Tigran Sargsyan
The external structure of the EEU today is quite extensive. More than 40 countries are interested in collaborating with the Union so they can enjoy free, preferential trade with the EEU.
