Moscow: Russia will take measures against Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia their agreements with the European Union (EU), Prime Minister Dmirty Medvedev said Monday.

The EU signed the agreements with the three countries in Brussels June 27. The Moldovan parliament ratified the document Wednesday.

"Obviously, this will seriously affect (Moldova`s) trade-economic relations with its international partners, including the Customs Union countries and members of the CIS free trade zone," Xinhua quoted Medvedev as saying at a government meeting.

The Eurasian Common Economic Space (CES), created by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in 2012, planned to discuss possible protective measures July 16, Medvedev said.
