The Russian side will consider the complaint after receiving it, Medvedkov said, adding that it would probably take place next week after the country’s November 4 National Unity Day holiday.
The European Union on Friday brought a complaint against Russia at the WTO challenging import tariffs that Moscow places on a range of goods, the WTO was reported as saying.
The complaint singles out paper and paperboard, palm oil and its fractions, refrigerators and combined refrigerators-freezers, it said, adding that Russia had 60 days to settle the issue in direct talks with the EU.
This is the latest in a series of EU complaints lodged since Russia joined the WTO in 2012. Russia has brought two cases against the EU.
