EU not to reduce customs duties for goods from the Crimea – V.Pyatnitsky
The European Union will not apply any autonomous trade preferences including unilateral reduction or even cancellation of the customs duties for Ukrainian commodities produced in the Crimea, as it is impossible to control the origin of commodities at the occupied territory. Thus, such situation may cause the exports of Russian commodities to the EU via Ukraine at the reduced customs rates, announced Valery Pyatnitsky, Government's Commissioner for European Integration of Ukraine, on April 8.
He noted that there are subject certain sanctions against the enterprises planning to operate on the European market for any breach related to the preferential treatment, which is supposed to be applied since the beginning of May until November 1, 2014.
V.Pyatnitsky added that in the nearest future it is important to regulate operation of the enterprises planning to export commodities to the EU, but located at the occupied territory of the Crimea.
