This issue was discussed at a meeting of Khoroshkovsky and European Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht in Brussels on Monday.

“As for the increase in duties, we work in compliance with the laws
of the WTO, and we are not going in any way to violate the rules laid
down by the organization,” Khoroshkovsky told reporters after a meeting
with De Gucht.

The first deputy premier confirmed that Europe was concerned about
this issue. “Furthermore, we were asked how we intend to proceed in the
future, because during the crisis any protectionist measure is even more
alarming. As of today, we haven’t violated any regulation, which was
confirmed by Commissioner De Gucht, and we act in line with Article 27,
and in this sense there can be no direct claims,” he said.
