According to First Deputy Minister of Economic Development of Russia Alexei Likhachev, the quotas on Ukrainian goods do not contradict the WTO rules, reports "TASS".
"In my opinion, we have proposed, the most harmless solution. We are talking about the risks of the flow of European dumped goods, which will replace Ukrainian ones. That is why we offer to set on some fixed quotas on these “risk group” products in terms of their maximum exports to Russia in recent years. The deliveries, amount of which is higher than the quota, will be levied with the fees,"- said Likhachev.
Earlier, Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev reported that duties on Ukrainian goods will not be imposed, if Russia receives the answers to all the "harassing questions" concerning economic association between Ukraine and the European Union.
Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Ukraine was scheduled for the end of June this year, but it did not enter into force.
Russia asked the European Union to postpone the Association Agreement with regard to the Free Trade Area with Ukraine until January 2017.
President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker stated that FTA between Ukraine and the EU will enter into force on the 1st of January, 2016.
