Ukraine will be barred from joining a customs union of former Soviet states if it signs a free-trade pact with the European Union this November, warned Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, urging Kiev to make the right political choice for the sake of its businesses and citizens. 

“I don’t want there to be any illusions on this issue,” said Medvedev during a weekly meeting with his deputy premiers in Moscow. “The situation is quite clear that if a document for associate membership with the EU states is signed, entry into the Customs Union for our Ukrainian partners will be closed."

“I believe that everybody, including people who live in Ukraine, should understand this… This is a key political choice, which the Ukrainian leadership is making today,” the Russian Prime Minister added, calling on EU leaders to speak frankly about the issue as well.
