Ukraine will soon reconsider its decisions on duties on imports of cars with the petrol engines of 1,100 to 2,200 cubic centimeters and quotas on imports of coke and coking coal, government commissioner for European Integration Valeriy Piatnytsky has said.
"On some directions, on which decisions are made at the level of the government, specific decisions will be soon made that will resolve these issues... Two things are being considered at the level of the government: on coke and coking coal and protective measures for vehicles," he told Interfax-Ukraine in Kyiv on Tuesday. At the same time, Piatnytsky said these measures were not being rejected, but brought into conformity with the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO). As reported, previously the EU has repeatedly criticized these restrictions, as well as a vehicle recycling tax introduced by Ukraine, stating that the review of these protective measures is one of the conditions for signing the association agreement with the EU. With respect to a vehicle recycling tax, the government commissioner explained that it was introduced by a law, so the Verkhovna Rada is responsible for its revision. "The government is now working on changes to the legislation," said Piatnytsky.
