Russia applied the customs duties on Moldavian agricultural products
The decision of the Russian Government to impose customs duties on Moldavian commodities entered into force.
According to the Decree of the Russian Government the import duties were introduced for a range of commodities produced in Moldova and imported to Russia.
The stated list includes: cereals (wheat, barley, oats, maize), flour (except wheat or rye), sunflower seeds, sugar, meat, vegetables, fruit, ethyl alcohol etc.
The issue of the protective measures related to the Republic of Moldova has been imposed on the Russian agenda after the signing of the Association Agreement between Moldova Republic and the EU on June 27, 2014. The Moldova Government mentioned that the Free Trade Agreement of the CIS and the Free Trade Agreement of the Republic of Moldova and the EU do not contradict each other, since they are based on the principles of the World Trade Organization, whose members are Moldova and Russia. The Moldova authorities believe that Russian imposed restrictions and prohibitions in bilateral trade are political nature rather than economical ones.
