Ukraine lost the dispute with Russia in the World Trade Organization (WTO) concerning the restrictions of traffic in transit because it had not listened to its own diplomats and their strategy. Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin posted this on Twitter.

“I ask myself why has Ukraine lost the dispute in WOT. Without praising our diplomatic team, I would like to say that sometimes one should listen to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs concerning the strategy and the tactics as well”, - Klimkin wrote.

Ukraine lost the dispute with Russia in WTO concerning the traffic in transit.

The dispute was concerning the ban transit, which broke the shortest way of supplies of Ukrainian production to Middle Asia. Examining the arguments of both parties, the World Trade Organization decided that the political situation in Ukraine in 2014-2015 could threaten the national security of the Russian Federation indeed. That is why the set restrictions are not considered violations.
