Putin threatens to abandon WTO obligations

Putin threatens to abandon WTO obligations
President Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would abandon World Trade Organisation rules it had already accepted voluntarily if no accession deal was reached with the United States.

He told the International Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday that the Russian economy functioned under more liberal conditions than some WTO member-states. If an accord with the U.S. was not reached, Russia would abandon obligations it had already started to fulfill, even though it was not yet a member.
