Russia's partners in the Customs Union have not supported Russia and refused to restrict imports of Ukrainian goods.
Russia proposed at a meeting of the Eurasian Economic Commission that Belarus and Kazakhstan adopt a joint resolution to restrict imports of Ukrainian goods, but the offer was rejected, according to TSN. "Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Rumas said that his country strongly opposed the restriction: a threat to the Customs Union economy from the signing of an agreement between the EU and Ukraine cannot currently be assessed, and therefore there is no need to make quick decisions," reads the statement. It also notes that Kazakhstan has not supported Russia, because it in the process of joining the WTO, and there might be a risk that Ukraine will block its accession. As reported, Russia tried to oblige its partners in the Customs Union to impose restrictions on Ukrainian imports after Ukraine signed the economic part of the Association Agreement with the EU.
