GENEVA, Mar 16 (PRIME) -- The World Trade Organization (WTO) has received statements from 14 members informing about their intent to cancel the preferential trade regime for Russia, an official told PRIME on Wednesday.†

"The WTO received statements of 14 WTO members yesterday, if we see the E.U. as one member, in which they explained their disagreement with the conflict in Ukraine and Russia's role in it,Ф the official said.

УIt was mostly a political statement, rather than official notification."

The states comprise the U.S., the U.K., the E.U., Moldova, Canada, Norway, Republic of Korea, Japan, Albania, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, North Macedonia and Montenegro.
