"Today we see what happens in many countries with decisions that are taken in the area global trade. We consider it inadmissible when UN agreements and decisions are not just ignored, but are unilaterally defied ... This does not increase stability, moreover, this creates tensions in all countries," Volodin added.
Volodin is the head of the Russian State Duma delegation at the conference.
