The issue of affordable customs clearance of cars with foreign registration in Ukraine has been open for more than two years. The activists, together with the organization “Auto Euro Power”, repeatedly went to rallies, met with the President of the country, drew up bills and so on. Despite such vigorous activity, the situation has not changed. Everything always ended with promises from the authorities and no more.
This time, the activists drew up an electronic petition in which they turned to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky with a demand to fulfill the promise made to their voters regarding the solution of the issue of affordable customs clearance. This petition was registered on September 7 and has received the required 25,000 votes to date. The author of the document was Ivan Vladimirovich Kazachuk.
The main requirements are the immediate inclusion of all registered bills, namely No. 3704, 3705, 3706, on the agenda of the Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Committee, as well as holding a general meeting of the Servant of the People party with representatives of the Auto Euro Force organization. According to the author of the petition, if the bills are adopted, the cost of customs clearance will decrease by at least 30%. In addition, privileged categories of citizens will have the opportunity to clear a car through customs almost free of charge.
“According to the community of owners of non-cleared cars, there are now more than 750 thousand cars with European registration on the territory of Ukraine. Customs clearance of such a number of cars will fill the state budget by at least 17 billion hryvnias, ”the message says.
