According to MP Tetiana Ostrikova, a member of the Samopomich faction, a three-year government budget resolution submitted this week provides for an exchange rate of 30.5 hryvnias per dollar, but does not even mention the reform of the State Fiscal Service and the customs. This is despite the fact that we lose at least 75 billion hryvnias annually because of the holes at the customs. This money ends up in the pockets of corrupt officials.
The MP addressed the Prime Minister during the hour of questions to the Cabinet, “Dear Mr. Hroisman, the tax reform is not only about raising the rates of excise duties. Our meeting with the IMF in Washington showed that they do not mind the introduction of the tax on withdrawn capital, but they demand a reform of the State Fiscal Service and the customs.”
“Today business is complaining about illegal checks and delays in customs clearance of goods, demurrage at the customs, lack of personnel, especially in Odesa, queues and requisitions. Therefore, I want the whole country to realize that unless there is order at the customs, you will bear personal responsibility, because the SFS being the central executive authority is directly subordinated to you,” summed up Tetiana Ostrikova.
