The Ukrainian newspaper "Zerkalo Nedeli" has analysed trends in Ukraine's foregn trade, the structure of the country's imports and exports and prospects for expanding trade. According to the paper, as a fledgling state, Ukraine was at a big disadvantage when it it made its first attempts to win foreign markets, which was evidenced by shrinking trade, especially with such traditional partners as CIS countries.
