Ukraine appeals against WTO decision over railway equipment import restrictions

Ukraine appealed against the WTO panel report in a dispute with the Russian Federation over railway equipment import restrictions.

"Ukraine filed an appeal on 27 August concerning the WTO panel report in the case brought by Ukraine in “Russia — Measures Affecting the Importation of Railway Equipment and Parts thereof” (DS499). The panel circulated its report on 30 July 2018," the WTO press service reports.

On July 30, the World Trade Organization published a report of a group of experts in the case of Ukraine v. Russia regarding the importation of railway equipment. Claims of Kyiv were upheld partially. The group of experts recognized that Russia had violated certain provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade of 1994 (GATT) and the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade.

Further information will be available within the next few days.

As reported, Ukraine filed an appeal against a WTO panel report in the case “Ukraine - Anti-Dumping Measures on Ammonium Nitrate” on August 23.
