The Ukraine-Russia economic cooperation program for 2011-2020 was developed in pursuance of a May 17, 2010, decision by the then presidents of Russia and Ukraine, Dmitry Medvedev and Viktor Yanukovych. In particular, the document determines the recovery of reputational losses after Ukraine-Russia gas transit disputes in 2006-2009 as the most important task, along with the abolition of mutual trade restrictions. Simultaneously with military aggression against Ukraine in 2014, the Russian Federation unleashed a trade and economic war, imposing an embargo on a number of sensitive Ukrainian export-oriented staples. Ukraine introduced retaliatory measures. Since 2014, Russia&#39;s share in Ukrainian exports has shrunk to 9% from almost 30%.
