MOSCOW, November 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will unify railway tariffs under the WTO rules two years after the accession to the organization, the director of the trading negotiations department at the Economic Development Ministry, Maxim Medvedkov, told a news conference at Itar-Tass.
“Railway transportation in accordance with the WTO rules must be the same. We are to eliminate the discrepancy in two years’ time,” he said.
