Imposing sanctions against the party to one free trade area, who entered another one, can be quite logical and natural, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in the interview with the country's central TV channels, ForUm correspondent reports.

The PM said that the imposing of sanctions is possible if subsequent FTA pose a threat to the parties of the previous contract.  In this case, they have the right to hold consultations on the protection of their markets in new environment.

"The FTA agreement with the CIS clearly stipulates: if we create a FTA with a third party, and thus create a threat to the CIS common market, the consultations to estimate potential damages will be held and the relevant decision will be made. Parties to the agreement will take such measures, even if they are not written in the text, - the head of the Cabinet said. - Moreover, the WTO rules allow that, there is nothing new here, and it makes us to treat the further simplified trade regimes very carefully".

"For example, if Russia will sign any document, creating a risk to our economy, we won’t leave it out of account," Azarov summed up.
