Ukraine still not recognized as country with market economy

On Thursday the Danish capital will host a so-called EU-Ukraine mini-summit. It will be attended by Ukraine's president Leonid Kuchma, head of the European commission (the EU supreme executive body) Romano Prodi, and Anders Fogh Rasmussen, prime minister of Denmark, the country that is chairing the EU since July 1st.

EU representative Reijo Kemppinen said on Tuesday that the Ukraine party intended to raise the question of acknowledging Ukraine as a country with market economy at the Copenhagen mini-summit. The EU, however, believes the possibility of a breakthrough unlikely and the step premature, Kemppinen pointed out.

The EU leadership plans to inform the Ukrainian party that Kiev will have to adopt additional measures in order to intensify the legal reform, fight with corruption and securing freedom of mass media, according to the EU representative.
