Tombinski warns against introducing ”mirror” trade sanctions against Russia by Ukraine

Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine, Ambassador Jan Tombinski believes that Ukraine`s decision to respond with ”mirror” trade sanctions against Russia would not be a reasonable measure.

Tombinski said this in a radio interview to EU Radio – European Station. 

Tombinski pointed to Ukraine`s role as a transit country in trade. From a legal point of view, the ambassador said, if the country is a member of the World Trade Organization, all steps will be checked in terms of compliance with the common law. Tombinski said the EU agreed that Russia`s latest restrictions on Ukrainian trade and transit to Central Asian countries, mainly to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, had openly breached international trade rule. At the same time, he said that Ukraine`s decision to respond with ”mirror” trade sanctions would not be the right move, since Ukraine would also be accused of violating the rules.
