    KIEV, January 28 (Sputnik) — Ukraine and China signed an agreement on economic and technical cooperation worth $8 million, the Ukrainian Ministry of Economic Development and Trade said.

    "The governments of Ukraine and China signed an agreement on economic and technical cooperation. It allows the receiving of non-repayable aid from the Government of China in the amount of 50 million yuan for the implementation of projects of the Ukrainian side," the ministry said in a statement Tuesday.
