Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev had arrived in Brussels to discuss the possibility of altering the Appendix to the EU-Ukraine association agreement.
“We are not going to take any adequate symmetrical measures if our partners heed to our concerns. If the ratification takes place on September 17-18, the agreement will consequently take effect on November 1, 2014. If it comes into force with all the provisions arousing our concern, we will retaliate with symmetrical measures on the same date. We have already warned our partners of the moves we are going to take,” Ulyukayev said.
According to Ulyukayev, the Russian government will draw up a draft resolution on introduction of protectionist measures in part of the most favored nation status for Ukraine against 144 ranges of goods, which make up approximately one fourth of trade turnover between Russia and Ukraine.
In addition to that, Russia is going to introduce measures of customs administration.
“We are going to be extremely attentive in checking the origin of goods, which are going to enter Russia from Ukraine. We will also introduce additional administrative measures of sanitary control,” Ulyukayev added.
