Kyiv extends sanctions on import from Russia
The decision of Ukraine's government to extend the sanctions on Russian goods import has entered into force. This is a response action to a similar Russia's move.
The embargo is expected to continue until the end of 2017.
The trade war between Ukraine and Russia sparked in 2016. On January 1 Moscow announced the suspension of the Free Trade Zone between the two countries and introduced the ban on import of Ukrainian goods.
Kyiv has repeatedly called Russia's actions a violation of the World Trade Organization rules.
