Russia's demand for consultations within the WTO is another step in economic, commercial and legal pressure on Ukraine, the Ukrainian ministry said. The Ukrainian Economy Ministry said that together with other interested government agencies they are carefully studying and analyzing Russia's demand, as well as the steps against which Russia appeals, in order to protect Ukraine's rights and interests. The Ministry recalls that over the past two years, Ukraine appealed to the WTO against the illegality of imposing restrictions by Russia on the import of railway rolling stock and other railway equipment produced in Ukraine, as well as restrictions on the transit from the territory of Ukraine through the territory of Russia to third countries. As reported, Russian Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin announced on May 20 that Russia had sent a request to the WTO Dispute Settlement Body to hold consultations as regards the restrictions imposed by Ukraine on Russian goods, services, and persons at the Ukrainian market since 2014, as well as on transit through Ukraine.

m. ET on USA Network. News, Potential Spoilers Matt Hardy may end up reviving the "broken" gimmick in WWE, but it won't be right away. Since leaving Impact Wrestling, the Hardy brothers have been trying to secure the rights to the version of their characters they played in the past few years. That process apparently hit a speed bump. Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reported: "T he US Patent and Trademark Office is forcing the wrestler to make changes to his filing." Monday's Raw won't be without Emma much longer. A shoulder injury in May spoiled her delayed return. Fans seemingly won't have to wait nearly as long to see her back in the ring this time around. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc), Emma is expected to be cleared to compete in June. And while the women's division will grow deeper when that happens, the cruiserweights will remain one veteran short.

It is now the conventional wisdom in Germany that the US can no longer be wholly relied on. This is bad news for everyone Angela Merkel’s matter of fact statement that Europe can no longer wholly trust Donald Trump’s Americaadding that this had become clear to her during the meetings on his European trip – is on one level unsurprising. Is there anyone who met the president on his recent foreign tour who felt better able to trust him as a result? There may be those, like the Saudis, who feel they got what they wanted from him, but not even they can feel they can rely on him. There is a horrible irony in the reported remarks of a “senior administration official” after the G7 meeting, that: “This was a summit in which the goals and priorities of the United States and the president really were felt deeply ... Mr Trump has changed the way many people around the world are thinking of these issues.
