Ukrainian delegation at the World Trade Organization (WTO) meeting urged Russia to lift the transit restrictions. Trade Ministry press service reports this.
Russian sanctions issue was at the centre of attention during the negotiations.
Economic Development and Trade Minister's Deputy Nataliya Mykolska stressed that these sanctions result in the decrease of the trade volume and can potentially lead to loss of interest in trade with Ukraine.
"Yet again Ukraine calls on the Russian Federation to immediately lift the transit sanctions and restore the non-discriminatory and available transit regime for all WTO states members", reads the message.
The EU countries, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, Norway, Georgia and Korea supported the Ukraine's position. Russia's delegation gave no explanation for these actions.
