ST. PETERSBURG, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia sees no need so far to review the terms of its membership in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), says Valentina Matviyenko,Speaker of the Federation Council.
At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Matviyenko said this in response to a question about whether Russia would review its participation in the IMF and the WTO, if the West tightened its sanctions over Russia’s policy on Ukraine.
Matviyenko said the IMF’s position "raises questions". As for the WTO, Russia will firmly and consistently fulfill its obligations, if only “our interests and rights are not infringed upon,” she said.
