On 4 July 2018, Ukraine's Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade (ICIT) announced the initiation of two anti-dumping investigations into imports of steel and cement.

The products being looked at by the investigations include cement originating from Russia, Belarus and Moldova.

Both investigations are the latest in a series of Ukraine's probes into and measures against Russian and Belarus exports, but this is the first time when Ukraine called products from Moldova into question.

The investigations should be concluded by 4 July next year (in special circumstances can be extended until 4 January 2020), but may affect imports already starting from the beginning of September 2018 when provisional anti-dumping duties can be introduced.

The ICIT will look into industries damages from January 2015 until December 2017 for cement, and where it finds that dumped imports caused injury to the domestic industries, may impose definitive anti-dumping duties on those for the next five years.
