Kazakhstan representatives in the Eurasian Economic Commission blocked the decision to implement customs duties on the Ukrainian rebars.
In the middle of July Vladimir Lisin, the co-owner of the Novolipetsk Iron and Steel Works, wrote to the Russia vice-primer-minister Igor Shuvalov saying the Kazakh representatives in the EEC were supporting the world steel producer ArcelorMittal.
A source in a metal company and a federal official have confirmed the blocking of customs duties by Kazakhstan.
It should be noted, that as early as May EEC recommended to implement anti-dumping duties against metal bars from Ukraine: 9.32% for ArcelorMittal Kriviy Rih and 10.11% for the other producers. (Ukrainian Metal)
