And the trade between Russian and the US economies where Moscow says it may impose retaliatory tariffs of nearly 540 million U.S. dollars on American goods in response to US duties on steel and aluminum. That's according to a document Russia circulated Tuesday at the World Trade Organization. Russia began a challenge of the American tariffs at the WTO last month but the document now qualifies the challenge as quote safeguard measures.
Russia says that means that international trade rules allow it to quickly apply tariffs on an equivalent amount of U.S. goods. Russia calculated that the US tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum were worth nearly five hundred and thirty-eight million U.S. dollars. The Russian document said 30 days notice would be provided on which goods would be subject to the increased duties. It also states that the tariffs would remain in effect until the U.S. withdrew its additional steel and aluminum tariffs.
俄罗斯和美国经济之间的贸易。莫斯科表示其可能对美国货物施加近5.4亿美元的报复性关税，回击美国的钢铝关税 。此消息源于俄罗斯周二在世界贸易组织中流通的一份文件 。上个月俄罗斯在世贸组织中挑战美国关税，但现在这份文件将此挑战正名为“保障措施” 。
俄罗斯称，这意味着国际贸易规则允许其快速对同等数量的美国货物施加关税。俄罗斯计算了美国对钢施加25%的关税，对铝施加10%的关税，总价值近5.38亿美元 。这份俄罗斯文件表示，会提前30天向那些被加收关税的货物发出通知 。它还表明，这些关税将一直生效，直到美国取消额外的钢铝税 。
