Poroshenko: EU market compensating for blow to economy dealt by Russia

Damage to Ukraine's economy done by Russia is offset by the opportunities offered by the EU market.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, it was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

"The EU share in our foreign trade is now 41 percent.
