Ukraine fights Russian “trade aggression” by increasing imports from Russia

33
Ukraine tried to challenge the measures of the Russian Federation in the framework of the WTO to reduce the volume of Ukrainian trade transit through the territory of the Russian Federation. According to the Ukrainian side, such a decision by Russia "violates the rules of trade relations, which are spelled out in documents of the World Trade Organization." Natalya Mikolskaya, Ukraine’s trade representative, who posted a Ukrainian flag on her Facebook page with the words “Stop Russian aggression”, writes that Russia “took the opportunity and blocked the initiative of Ukraine”.


Ukraine fights Russian “trade aggression” by increasing imports from Russia


Mykolskaya:
We continue to fight the trade aggression of Russia in the framework of the WTO.

20 February 2017 of the year, during the WTO dispute resolution meeting, the representative office of Ukraine made the first request to establish an arbitration panel in case of restriction of transit traffic from the territory of Ukraine through the territory of the Russian Federation to third countries (DS512 case "Russia - measures for transit traffic") .

As expected, Russia used the only chance to reject the request for the creation of a group at the first meeting in accordance with the WTO dispute resolution rules.

Ukraine will continue the procedure with respect to restrictions applied in the Russian Federation for transit traffic, and will ask for the creation of an arbitration panel at the next WTO meeting. During the meeting, the European Union supporting Ukraine expressed interest in the case, and announced its intention to join as a third party.


And against the background of how Mikolskaya is fighting “against the Russian trade aggression”, the statistical bodies reported on trade relations between Ukraine and Russia. It turns out that in 2016, Ukraine became the largest importer of such goods from Russia as meat and beer. In Kiev, they say that Russia understands the export of goods to Ukraine and the supply of goods to the DPR and LPR (“certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions” - the Ukrainian version). At the same time, it is not entirely clear, is this a statement of fact by Kiev or a reproach? After all, if you reproach, it turns out that Kiev does not recognize the LDNR as the territory of Ukraine ...

      Yes, it seems that not everyone has enough fat from chocolate from Poroshenko!

      And the dill is wrongly formulated - not Russian aggression, but the defense of its national interests.

        I read it, dear hi
        In Kiev, they say that Russia by export to Ukraine also means the supply of goods to the DPR and LPR
        And what else should they declare in Kiev, otherwise wink

        I agree, deliveries to LDNR, nothing more.
        Beer (at least until 2014) in dill was good and stably cheaper than Russian almost 2 times. Who would buy our beer there if the hryvnia fell another 2 times?

          I probably won’t tell you a secret if I say that modern beer, at least in the territory of the former CIS, is made according to one recipe and from the same gov .... And, so, that delicious Ukrainian beer is more a stereotype ... tasty beer and in Russia there, just do not need to frankly buy cheap ....

      Yes, in Donetsk we have few meat products and beer, because there is everything from the Russian Federation. Even beer of Ukrainian brands - Chernihiv and Obolon, from the factories of the Russian Federation. So the Ukrainian government is cutting the economy with its own hands. Previously, beer and meat from Donetsk went to the Russian Federation, now the opposite.

    Beer supplies for the year increased 1,5 times - up to 38,46 million decaliters, the data of Russian customs officials show. Regarding meat, it is specified that in 2013-2014. these products were hardly sold to Ukraine. The situation changed dramatically last year: 47 tons were sold to this country. And here, Hawthorn began to smoothly migrate to an independent one.

      The bottom line is that during the time of Yanukovych, Ukraine supplied 30% of agricultural and food products to Russia and received full American rubles for it, but today, the former Ukraine has to buy food for the same American rubles in "enemy" Russia. And where to get the money for it, Zin? Only oligarchs on their own can do this on condition that a walrus is bought during the sale inside the Ruins, but the people don’t have money, hence the moral must be robbed, someone stole. And the IMF, meanwhile, froze the last tranche of $ 1,0 billion in connection with non-compliance with its (IMF) conditions. In short - the matter is "seams".

        Ukraine has nowhere to put its agricultural products (and food), Europe does not take it - they sell it to Belarus, and from there to Russia. The majority of the population has such low purchasing power in the presence of a large assortment that the prices of goods rise slowly - no one simply takes them.
        Be realistic, on this background what ukrobanderovsky .... duck and for what crazy need will buy goods in Russia, if its wholesale price is 10-15% more than retail in Ukraine ????

          Hey. Read my comment carefully. I said that they CAN, and not that they BUY. And the rest you just confirmed what I said.
          Well, as regards European assistance to the former Ukraine, Western analysts draw mixed conclusions about this:

          And again the banal question: "... where is the money, Zin?".

        Where did you read such nonsense? In Ukraine, an excess of meat production. The second year they reduce production volumes to equalize supply / demand. In January, I bought a pork shoulder in the Metro at 65 hryvnia. Accordingly, buying meat in Russia is not profitable. Therefore, the export specified in the article could not get anywhere except in the Donbass.

    Others, a wonderful verse about the anniversary of the Maidan, author Igor Gridasov from Kharkov wanders in the networks:

    Again, standing on the Maidan of the twentieth,
    Cold, February, I'm looking for the guilty.
    Again, all the cookies are crushed to the crumbs,
    Again around the twin maydaunas.

    Well, everything will download to us and does not pratsyutsya,
    It seems that the street has already been renamed,
    The monument is discarded, under the staircase nao.
    It can be seen that the victims were not in vain.

    A rumble under the pan and in the lace of the egg,
    And Parasyuk goes broke into the microphone,
    Bulatov's ear, Kule Arseny,
    Again, a spring exacerbation on the nose.

    Again, in my soul and conscience,
    Once again, we zig, not seeing the Nazis,
    Once again we drink gulls in horse doses
    The drunken confectioner broadcasts from the bulldozer:
    - Soon we have, I dare to hope,
    Everything will become ill, become European,
    To be tolerated, to fall in love, to intervene, to sweeten,
    Integrates and zarayparadit!

    It’s clear that he’s trying for the people,
    The benefits are all explained on the fingers.
    Ah these fingers with ring wheels
    Ah, these are Waltzmann-Groisman formulas.

    The morning is foggy, gray, dull,
    The smell of freedom and Lviv garbage.
    After yesterday’s anthem, I don’t drink too much,
    Not produced, not mined,
    Not created at all and not built,
    What, tell me, all this will be covered.

    I want to eat, keep warm in NATO.
    Again, standing on the Maidan of the twentieth!

    "It turns out that in 2016 Ukraine became the largest importer of such goods from Russia as meat and beer"...

    Yesterday, the layout was for 2014-2016 for the supply (export) to Russia of defense products, which grew by several times ... Mention was also made of Motor Sich, which, under the agreement, should put a decent amount of engines on the Yak-130 ... It's a pity that did not bookmark ...
    So - war - war, and business - business ...

    Well, I don’t know my friend what you mean by frankly cheap. For example, Ryazan Zhiguli at a price of 35-42re. much tastier than that urine under the brands Baltic, Klinskoe, Miller, Fax, Outtinger, and the like threshing floor made with us. Imported beer brought directly from Germany or the Czech Republic is certainly tastier, but it costs 6-8 times more than the same Zhigulevsky. In general, the tastiest beer was draft in the USSR.

    And let's figure it out.
    Before us is the news of two news. The first is about transit, the second is about import. The author mixed horses and people, although they are two different. In the first part
    At the beginning of 2017, Ukraine will file another lawsuit against the World Trade Organization against Russia on the facts of restrictions on imports of Ukrainian products. This was stated by the trade representative of Ukraine Natalya Mikolskaya, RBC-Ukraine agency reported on December 27.
    “We are completing the process of collecting evidence on the restriction of imports of Ukrainian food products and other industrial goods to the Russian Federation and are going to file this lawsuit early next year,” she said.
    Recall that in summer Ukraine called on the European Union to increase pressure on the Russian Federation to remove restrictions on the transit of Ukrainian products.
    Everything is clear here. Problems with transit through the Russian Federation to the same Kazakhstan. The Russian Federation is blocking, Ukraine is trying to challenge using the WTO platform. Everyone is following his own interests. Transit to Kazakhstan is a lever-RF uses it. Ukraine is resisting, but not so far.
    Now the second news, which caused a wild success. Here it is, Ukraine drinks “aggressor beer and eats aggressor meat.” Here it is necessary to understand in more detail.
    According to the FCS, in 2016, Ukraine bought 47,89 thousand tons of Russian meat, although in 2013-2014 Ukraine almost did not buy meat and offal in Russia,
    Also, deliveries of Russian beer to Ukraine increased 2016 g 1,5 times in annual terms to 38,46 million decalitres.
    statistical agencies reported on trade relations between Ukraine and Russia. It turns out that in the 2016 year, Ukraine became the largest importer of such goods from Russia as meat and beer.

    FCS is a Russian authority. That is, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation reported. Let's take a look at what exactly.
    At the same time, Ukraine itself is recording a decline in beer and meat imports from Russia, since at the end of 2015, both categories of products fell under the ban. The growth of imports, as Vedomosti found out, falls on the unrecognized Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics.
    The DNI itself does not deny deliveries from Russia, but a source in the republic’s leadership told the publication that they are several times less than the data provided by the Federal Customs Service.

    According to Vedomosti, Russian meat has a meat processing plant in Makeevka Donetsk, as well as a Lugansk meat processing plant. At the same time, Russian manufacturers either refused to discuss deliveries to the DPR and LPR, or stated that they were not sending anything there.
    At first, the export of Russian goods to the DPR was paid in cash, which was even transported to Russia by trucks, the newspaper writes. Then, non-cash settlement was established: the receiving party opened an account with the Republican Bank, and the sender opened the account in Moscow LLC NKO Center for International Settlements. In 2015, this company turned from a non-bank credit organization into a full-fledged bank that does not disclose its owners.
    Formally, there are no sanctions for the supply of products from Russia to the LPR and DPR. But there are a lot of people from Donetsk on the US sanctions list, which means that for cooperation not only with them, but also with companies controlled by them and related parties, Russian suppliers may be subject to sanctions, the Russian lawyer argues.
    Total we have in the dry residue. Kiev-controlled Ukraine does not import meat and beer due to the ban. Unsupervised Kiev Separate Areas-import. Country importer anyway, Ukraine.
    After all, it caused joy that the goods are all from the Russian Federation. And now it also brings joy to the realization that "Ukraine" eats meat and drinks beer from the Russian Federation. Although it is trite even the prices in Ukraine are lower for these goods and it would be difficult to fight (if there were no ban).
    The main goods imported by Kiev are fuel and engineering products.
    That's all I wanted to say.

    Ho ...... it’s time for the llamas to decide already - then they are at war with the “Russian invaders”, and they call Russia, its president, and the whole people enemies, then suddenly the “enemy” must provide transit transportation of their products. This can happen only in a very sick brain.
