Abstract. The comparison between the basic set of legal WTO documents statements and the Russian praxis after joining this organization will allow to answer the burning questions: how the WTO membership impacts on the economic – first of all, the industrial  policy, on the domestic enterprises' activity, on the home market situation; if there are high risks emerging from the abatement in import fees; if the wide-scale collapse is inevitable, and many other. 

Keywords: Russia, WTO rules, industrial policy, state support, tariff “disarmament”, branch risks
