As Ukraine is becoming more integrated in Europe, an interesting pattern is taking place. The weight of Ukraine's trade with Russia continues to decrease and the weight of trade with Germany and other EU nations continues to grow.
The EU block is Ukraine's number one trading partner already. And if nations are taken separately, Russia is still number one, though falling, and Germany is a growing number two trading partner of Ukraine.
Even without being a member of the EU or NATO, Ukraine is increasingly a European nation, closely integrated as it is economically with the rest of Europe.
