The Russian Federation acceded to the World Trade Organization (WTO), and so became subject to its international trade dispute settlement procedures, on August 22, 2012. The mechanism was adopted by the WTO under the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (DSU). Thus, from August 2012 onwards, Russia has enjoyed the right to defend its trade interests by applying this particular instrument.
