Tempus Fugit – Clock change…..and the WTO

October 31, 2011

Well, the clocks changed in Ukraine yesterday as they did over most of the contenent of Europe, except in nations like Russia and Belarus where they have decided to stop tinkering with the clocks twice a year.

Going to have to remember that when calling the lad at college in Moscow.

I am bound to get confused being a bit of a thicky-twin!

Meanwhile it seems Russian WTO entry is about to become a reality as Georgia will no longer block Russian entry.  (Well done the Swiss negotiating team).

Membership of the Eurasion Customs Union soon becomes much more of a possibility for Ukraine as the lack of Russian WTO membership was a major political stumbling block in Kyiv.  It didn’t stop an FTA with the CIS nations however, already signed sealed and delivered.

Meanwhile the EU slumbers on as both key nations East (Ukraine) and South (Turkey) begin to look away.
