Earlier, Russia won in a dispute with Ukraine in the framework of arbitration at the world trade organization (WTO) on the introduction of Kiev anti-dumping duties on imports of ammonium nitrate (ammonium nitrate) from Russia. In particular, the WTO ruling said that the Ukrainian authorities are inconsistent and illegally put pressure on EuroChem.

The dispute between Moscow and Kiev on this issue lasted from may 2015, when Russia challenged the protectionist duties. Kiev has imposed prohibitive duties on Russian deliveries of mineral fertilizers, which grew three times from 11.91 to 36.03 percent in July 2014.

The Russian side insisted that Kiev had deliberately understated the market value of the gas (necessary for the production of ammonium nitrate) in Russia to introduce anti-dumping duties.
