Since the beginning of the special operation of the Russian Federation, Ukraine has abolished the tax on the import of cars into the country in order to quickly make up for their shortage in the Armed Forces, but now luxury cars are being massively imported under the guise of military assistance. This was announced on Sunday, May 15, by the First Deputy Head of the State Customs Service (STS) of Ukraine Oleksandr Shutsky on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel.
“This is actually turning into an epidemic. I can say that since the adoption of the zero duty law, as of yesterday, about 80,000 vehicles have been imported for their own use,” he said.
According to Shutsky, 30% of imported cars cost over €20,000. RIA News. Moreover, in recent days there has been a tendency to increase their share. Due to the large number of cars imported by Ukrainians, many kilometers of traffic jams are created at the border, which interfere with the supply of military cargo, humanitarian aid and fuel, the deputy head of the State Customs Service added.
