President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko vows that Ukraine will not obstruct Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this, speaking at the WTO General Council session in Geneva on Tuesday.

The Ukrainian President expressed a belief that all countries, including post-Soviet ones, must form their relations basing on the WTO regulations.

“Ukraine will never support introducing unjustified and artificial complications into the negotiations on WTO accession of other countries. We absolutely support Russia’s joining WTO. Ukraine will apply maximal forces for Russia to join WTO as soon as possible”, he said.
