“According to preliminary data of customs statistics, in September 2012 there was no sharp increase in imports due to a decrease in the level of tariff protection. On the contrary, the value of imports of goods from non-CIS countries to Russia decreased by about 2012% compared to August 10, ”the EEC said.

The analysis was carried out on the basis of preliminary data from the customs statistics of the Russian Federation, since Russia's foreign trade is crucial for the market of the Customs Union. Data from the customs services of Kazakhstan and Belarus will be analyzed as they become available.
