Despite the negative factors, trade-economic cooperation between Russia and the EU back on a growth track, said Friday the acting Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov.

«However, despite the difficult situation in Europe, economic and trade cooperation between Russia and the EU back on the growth trajectory. At the end of last year the trade turnover increased more than 20%. Although to achieve pre-crisis levels, there is still a lot of hard work,» said Lavrov in an interview with the magazine «Russian Business Guide – Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce».
