Official Kyiv hopes that Bulgaria's presidency of the Council of the European Union will contribute to the implementation of Ukraine's European integration priorities.

This is stated in the priorities of the EU-Ukraine cooperation proposed by the Ukrainian side during Bulgaria's presidency of the Council of the European Union, a Brussels-based Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Relying on the successful Bulgaria’s presidency, Ukraine has developed short-term priorities in relations with the EU. We expect the Bulgarian leadership in the Council of the EU to promote the effective implementation of these priorities," the document says.

Kyiv proposes to focus on the issues of political dialogue, security and defense, financial assistance, justice, energy and transport, as well as research, innovation and education.

With regard to trade and economic cooperation, Ukraine proposes to create a new financial instrument with the aim of improving the implementation of an in-depth and comprehensive free trade area, as well as to thoroughly study the issue of Ukraine's integration into the EU Customs Union.
