Ukraine to Raise Issue of Limited Goods Transit Through Russia in WTO
KIEV (Sputnik) Kiev urged Brussels to increase its pressure on Moscow to remove the restrictions on the transit of Ukrainian goods through Russia, Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Nataliya Mykolska said on Wednesday.

"[Kiev] called on the EU to increase the pressure on the Russian Federation for the immediate lifting of the restrictive measures in respect to the transit [of Ukrainian goods]," Mykolska wrote on Twitter.

On Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an amendment to the decree on economic safety and national interests, in which it was stipulated that Ukrainian goods may only be transported through Russia to Kazakhstan via specific check points and routes and with a special customs convoy. The decree was prolonged until the end of 2017.

Shortly after news of this move, Kiev said it had prepared countermeasures against Moscow and would raise the issue of the limits on the transit of Ukrainian goods through Russia with the World Trade Organization.
