KIEV, October 21. /TASS/. Ukraine has lodged the first complaint against the Russian Federation to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade and Ukraine’s trade representative Natalya Mikolskaya said on Wednesday.
"This morning the first complaint was lodged to the WTO against Russia, which is related to restrictions imposed on Ukraine’s railroad cars and switches," Deputy Minister was quoted as saying by Ukrainian News information agency.
"We expect those issues to be managed by Russia at consultations stage, which will last for 30 days," she said.
Mikolskaya added that the complaint will be followed by similar ones, related to groundless imposition of restrictions on supplies of railroad cars from Kryukov car-building plant, Dnepropetrovsk switch-making plant and other manufacturers.
Ukraine’s revenues dropped by 34 times — from $1.7 bln in 2013 to $51 mln in 2015 — due to restrictions imposed by Russia, Deputy Minister added.
