The General Council of the World Trade Organization (WTO) will consider the question of Russia’s trade sanctions, including transit blockade at the Ukraine’s request on July 27-28.
This issue is mentioned in the WTO General Council meeting’s agenda, Yevropeyska Pravda reports.
Recall Ukraine’s Trade Representative Nataliya Mykolska said Ukraine has a "good chance" to solve the problem of trade aggression from Russia with the help of partner support from the World Trade Organization.
The EU, the US, Canada, Australia, Norway, Turkey, Japan and Korea supported the Ukraine’s statement in the framework of the WTO on new trade sanctions by Russia, which "undermine the foundations of international trade, the principles and rules of the WTO”. These countries called on the Russian Federation to remove restrictions immediately.
