The Federation Council ratified the protocol on Russia's accession to the WTOThe Federation Council today ratified the Protocol of Russia's accession to the Marrakesh Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization of April 15 of 1994.


This document was signed by 16 December 2011 of the year in Geneva during the plenary session of the Eighth WTO Ministerial Conference, the Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and the Director General of the Organization. The signing of the protocol finally completed the 18-year period of negotiations held by Russia for accession to the WTO.

The protocol provides that Russia, as a WTO member state, assumes obligations under the Marrakesh Agreement with all the changes that were adopted by the members of the organization on the date of the entry into force of the protocol on Russian accession. Currently, WTO members are 155 states.

"The text of the Protocol, which fixes the agreement on Russia's accession to the WTO, is attached to the list of commitments of the Russian Federation for access to commodity markets and services markets, including the list of exemptions from the most favored-treatment regime for services," said Andrei Belousov, the Minister of Economic Development, earlier. - Obligations according to the acceptable level of support for agriculture in the framework of the so-called yellow basket / this is support that has a distorting effect on trade - ed. /, on export duties, on tariff quotas also on included in the list of commitments for goods. In addition, the text of the Protocol refers to the obligations listed in paragraph 1450 of the accession working group. " The protocol, its annexes and the obligations listed in the relevant paragraph of the report of the working group are collectively legally significant elements of the package of documents submitted for ratification, the minister explained.

The list of concessions and commitments of Russia for goods covers more than 11,5 thousand tariff lines, consolidates the results of bilateral and multilateral negotiations on market access of goods, including obligations for export and import duties, amounts of agricultural support, tariff quotas, and export subsidies in agriculture.

The list of Russia's specific obligations on services, which contains a list of exemptions from the most-favored-nation treatment, summarizes the results of bilateral negotiations with interested WNO member countries of 30. In total, the agreements cover the 117 sectors / the WTO altogether allocates more than the 150 services sectors /. And in the 39 sectors / including pipeline, railway, inland waterway transport, most medical services, etc. / Russia does not take on obligations. After accession to the WTO in these sectors, any restrictions may apply to foreign service providers, up to the full closure of the market, provided that the obligations to provide the most-favored-nation treatment are not violated.

Ratification of the protocol will entail the need to pay a one-time fee and annual membership fees of the Russian Federation to the WTO. After ratification of the protocol, a budget allocation in the amount of 2012-175 thousand Swiss francs will be required for the payment of a one-time fee and 200 million Swiss francs / according to preliminary estimates / for the payment of the annual contribution for the second half of 1,75. At the same time, since at present the Russian Federation has the status of an observer of the WTO, in the 2012 year it is also necessary to make a contribution of the observer in full - 2012 thousand Swiss francs. When joining during the year, the balance of the fee will be proportionally deducted from the membership fee. The corresponding funds in the federal budget are already provided.

In addition, according to preliminary estimates, the implementation of Russia's commitments related to membership in the WTO, will lead to a reduction in revenues to the federal budget due to lower rates of customs duties. Belousov said that direct budget losses from a reduction in import duties could amount to 2013 billion rubles in 188, and 2014 billion rubles in 257. "However, we proceed from the fact that real budget losses will be significantly lower due to the growth of trade, and hence the taxable base, and due to the increased collection of duties, which is directly related to their level," he said.

Recognizing that entry into the WTO carries certain risks for a number of sectors of the Russian economy, the Federation Council nevertheless believes that the country has no alternative to joining the Organization. According to Andrei Molchanov, chairman of the Federation Council’s Economic Policy Committee, the accession of the Russian Federation to the WTO will ultimately "become an incentive for increasing labor productivity and the efficiency of domestic production." Speaker Valentina Matvienko earlier assured that the Federation Council will actively monitor the consequences of joining the WTO in the regions and, if necessary, “promptly develop appropriate legislative response measures,” a temporary commission set up in the chamber is called upon to deal with.

    Well, and who needs it? The WTO was created to control prices, regulate them and, accordingly, pressure with their help! No matter how anyone writes, the WTO dug up a hole for themselves, or rather, managers in the government dug it up for us, bought by ugly freaks who imagined they were masters of the world If Putin does nothing with this, then all his stories about strengthening and everything else will remain just words!

    Everything within the framework of the united economic space. The one who sets the prices is the owner. The traitors took another step towards the destruction of the country. It is not for nothing that the Federation Council is called the "billionaire club".

    Here are the results of our illustrious tandem! And this despite their own conclusions:

    We know from experience that any event brought by the authorities with sweet aromas always as a result smelled frankly bad! And here they themselves admit that they climbed into D, E, P, b, M, O, but they are optimistically reassuring - DIVE UNTIL WE OFFER US!

      In Ukraine, household appliances are lower, and prices for vegetables fell after joining the WTO. Although they immediately felt the pressure, for example, we were forbidden to trade in grain, since it is cheaper than in Europe. Ukraine has sold 14 million tons of grain

    Russia joining the WTO, as always relies on the decency of its Western "partners", but unfortunately the lessons of the past have been learned poorly, and it was not advisable to join such an organization during the economic crisis, the result is clear in advance. As a result, the West will try to squeeze out of Russia for itself maximum benefit, hanging on us all your problems and debts.

    No words - some mats! I'd love to know the price of this betrayal. What is the attitude towards the people of their country who have chosen them? The attitude to the people as to sheep in the pen — we want to feed, we want to drive away, but we will have to let it go under the knife. I wonder what they will do with millions of unemployed?

    Well, everyone has already signed, now it's time to go out. Played for 18 years, and waking up.

    Now it’s just possible to take the country into the WTO, it has almost collapsed, it has become weak in market relations. And with a weak economy, they just need to promote their goods and services. In general, hold on to Russia.

    It's time to change our government, (they began senility), except for GDP. He needs fresh, young, smart, energetic heads. And not these unicellular with a direct brain line on ... ope.

    I don’t know what our entry will be the stimulus of. I’ll go buy cereals, pasta, sugar and salt, while there is enough salary for this! but it seems that he only began to live at least a little humanly ... Ishaks of Bukhara sniffed them and died! Sorry, you can’t swear ....

    Today I talked with entrepreneurs. The question was about joining the WTO. People working in business unanimously declared that only those who invest nothing in production, who are used to evading taxes by any means, and paying salaries in envelopes are afraid of joining. Plus, those who are used to hiring Tajiks, paying them a penny. And so none of those with whom I spoke had any particular fear.

    Nda ... not otherwise, as with the oligarchs you communicate, because only they are the WTO to one place, since interests have long been outside of Russia "live". Small and medium businesses will simply evaporate. Reservations in the terms of entry? Yes there is. With regard to the same "fat cats", that is, bankers and others ... In short, the main barometer is our own skin, which will soon react to the consequences of this "care" for us orphan and poor, once we perceive this "wise decision" silently.

    Guys. Well, I think it’s not necessary to consider all those in power as enemies. I think there are adequate people there too. There will naturally be a negative, but we will see the pluses. If it’s completely shitty, let's move on to resistance. Sincerely.

    It is high time. We have long been not a team closed economy with complete self-sufficiency, and is not yet part of the global market. Those. we can not fully use the advantages of any of these systems. Of course in the beginning it will not be easy, but without breaking eggs, you can’t cook fried eggs. If we were some kind of Arabs, I might be worried, but we are Russians and have already shown an economic miracle, we can once again.

    Guys! What the hell is this ?! And so how many have been pumped out of our country over the past 20 years! So everything is not enough for them. Now got into the WTO for the most do not indulge! After all, the majority are AGAINST! It's like a referendum for the USSR or against. The majority answered “for”, and three monsters secretly stole the Union. So here too, everyone wanted to spit on this WTO, so get it and don’t Gundite! Where we are going?..

    It seems to me that Russia, due to the stock of nuclear weapons created by our grandfathers, will not be involved in the third world war. Even in spite of Amer’s developers such as Aegis, it is unlikely that they will force us to check the reliability of their systems in a real nuclear war. In addition, if you recall all kinds of predictions, they also indicate a certain peaceful future for our country.

    Hello everyone, Comrades !!!

    I would like to ask the supporters of WTO accession a question.

    WHY WTO IN RUSSIA:

    - in a country - a raw materials appendage, in which the comprador power rules, actively killing everything Russian - industry, agricultural production,
    - in a country with obsolete factories,
    -in a country in which, in the place of factories killed by the authorities, shopping centers are now located, as in my city
    -in a country in which the top is not interested in supporting its manufacturer, and often lobbies foreign, companies that are likely to come with good kickbacks
    - in a country in which prices for the services of natural monopolies (and these are Putin’s friends, whom he allows to raise prices every year), and, accordingly, production costs are higher than in many WTO countries
    -in a country in which the power to destroy domestic science and education, both higher and secondary
    - in a country in which practically from scratch it is required to re-create a system of secondary technical educational institutions and material resources
    - in a country in which being a worker, engineer or agricultural worker is considered shameful

    AND AS IT SEEMS FOR ME, RUSSIA WILL NOT HAVE ANY SMALLEST POSITION FROM JOINING THE WTO!
