The official decision of the Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade was published today in the newspaper "Governmental Courier", and the Ukrainian Agri Council (UAC) published it on its official website.
The Commission decided that it was not appropriate to initiate an anti-subsidy investigation into imports of certain crude oil products into Ukraine, as the evidence provided was insufficient.
Agrarians were heard without even starting an investigation!
The introduction of a special duty threatened to increase the price of fuel and lubricants in the midst of the harvest and farmers would be forced to buy them at inflated prices. Moreover, higher fuel and liquefied gas prices would lead to a chain reaction: rising food prices, transportation, and the cost of other consumer goods.
