WTO: ша, никто никуда не едет.

BRUSSELS (AFP) — The European Commission urged Russia on Tuesday to step up efforts to join the WTO after Moscow announced plans to back out of trade commitments during the long running negotiations.

"As the only major economy outside the WTO, it should hasten its efforts to join," commission spokesman for trade issues Peter Power told journalists in Brussels.
