MOSCOW, April 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Foreign countries had used 72 protective measures against Russian goods as of April 1, 2012, the Ministry of Economic Development Elvira Nabiullina said in a report on socio-economic development in January-March, released on Wednesday, April 25.
These included 38 anti-dumping measures, four special protective measures, 30 other non-tariff regulation measures, including administrative regulation, and four anti-dumping investigations.
Measures against Russian goods for protection of their markets were taken by Australia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Brazil, India, Indonesia, China, Kyrgyzstan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Moldova, the United States, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, and EU countries.
The largest number of measures were effective in the EU, Ukraine, the U.S. and Belarus. More than half of all measures were imposed against the import of Russian ferrous metals and products made from them. Fertilizers were second in the list.
As a result of the efforts taken by the Ministry of Economic Development in the first quarter of 2012, seven measures against Russian goods were terminated. According to preliminary expert assessments, these measures might have caused about 40 million U.S. dollars in losses if not prevented.
