The United States is currently actively using anti-dumping measures against Ukrainian products, which will reduce Ukrainian exports for decades, the government's commissioner for European integration, Valeriy Piatnytsky, has said, Interfax informs.

"As of March 2013, seven anti-dumping measures are effective in the U.S. on imports of Ukrainian steel reinforcing bars, urea, ammonium nitrate, hot rolled steel and its products, rod and wire made of carbon and alloy steel, some products of cutting hot-rolled flat carbon and ferrosilicon manganese, whose shipments before the application of these measures accounted for over $350 million," the official said in an interview with ZN.UA.

According to him, the oldest of the measures have been in force since 1986, the newest ones since 2001. The level of anti-dumping duties ranges from 41% to 237%.

"From time to time, Ukrainian companies take part in revisions, but the American side always finds reasons to extend the measures. And the requirement to guarantee the supplies to the U.S. market with the payment of anti-dumping duties in order to give the revisions any chance of success is highly questionable from the point of view of compliance with the WTO rules, and from the point of view of ordinary commercial logic - what business is going to pay 100%-200% above the price of the delivery, having then no chance to sell such expensive products," Piatnytsky said.
