In case if blocking Russian trucks moving through the territory of Ukraine will be continued, the country will meet  World Trade Organization (WTO) sanctions, - stated the Head of the Infrastructure Ministry Transport Department Roman Khmil on Facebook.

"If we will block this small stream, WTO will impose sanctions, and no one would drive through our territory " – wrote Roman Khmil.

Earlier Ukraine and Russia agreed to return their trucks home

Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure Andriy Pivovarsky denied the information about blocking Russian trucks in Ukraine during the dialogue with journalists.

"Today, there are so many fakes in the public space ... At this moment, there are two peaceful protests in Lviv and Volyn region. No one is blocking Russian tracks because such act is leading to criminal responsibility."

In turn Roman Khmil praised the drop in Ukraine’s revenues due to the transits reduction.

"A rough estimate of losses is 15 billion UAH traffic revenues plus at least 100 billion UAH from the export sale of our products. I'm afraid that in fact it’s much more", - wrote Khmil.
