A joint EU-Russian-Ukrainian communique on the EU-Ukraine trade treaty has left out Russian proposals to amend the pact and to delay its implementation if Russia requests so after expert-level talks in July and August. EU commissioner De Gucht declined to say if Ukrainian implementation will be delayed until September, however.
