In the first nine months of 2010, it stood at 867.3 million US dollars, down by 3.3 per cent. This included 138.7 million dollars in Bulgarian exports to Ukraine, up by 40.7 per cent.

Bulgarian exports to Ukraine are dominated by petroleum oil, medicines, and plastic and glass products. The main commodities imported from Ukraine to Bulgaria are crude petroleum oil, bituminous coal, iron and steel products, and ship equipment components.
