Title: A la carte: Ukrainian positions on free trade with the EU

Ukraine is negotiating with the EU on a comprehensive free-trade agreement. The east European country is to adopt the regulations of the EU internal market; in exchange, trade barriers such as tariffs will be dismantled. Those opposed to this include all those who profit from an opaque & corruption ridden economics policy & those who could be exposed to greater competitive pressure. In the administrative apparatus, opposition is enormous. The interests of big business by contrast are manifold. Their position on the free-trade agreement is therefore ambivalent, like that of Ukraine's political parties. Adapted from the source document.
