Before this, the same information was provided by a number of other media (including Russia-1) with links to sources in Kiev.
It is reported that Kiev asks Brussels to postpone the date of signing the contract due to the difficult economic situation in the country.

After all, precisely because of the economic difficulties at the time the signing of the contract proposed to transfer President Yanukovych, which led Ukraine to another Maidan, followed by a coup d'état.
