The Cabinet of Ministers suspended traffic of cargo trucks from Russia. “In breach of rules and procedures of the World Trade Organization, the Russian Federation stopped the traffic of Ukrainian cargo vehicles through its territory. Until the Russian side explains its actions and solves this matter, Ukraine temporarily suspends movement of cargo vehicles that are registered in Russia through the Ukrainian territory”, reads the message at the website of the Ukrainian government.
The Ukrainian side also held consultations with EU member countries concerning Russia’s fulfillment of its commitments in the WTO.
Previously, on February 12, a large-scale blockade of Russian cargo trucks began in Ukrainian regions. Currently, activists in ten regions of the country supported the blockade.
