on social media

The
Governmental Courier newspaper first reported on March 14 that Ukraine’s duties
on imported cars will be hiked an additional 6.5 to 13 percent  – on top of regular 10 percent import duties
– on cars with engine sizes between 1,000 and 2,200 cubic centimeters.

According
to the Ukrainian Association of Automobile Importers and Dealers, due to the
government measure, the price of imported cars with engine capacity from 1,000
to 1,500 cubic centimeters will go up by 7.8 percent, while vehicles with
engine capacity from 1,500 to 2,200 cubic centimeters will rise by 15.6
percent.

Prime
Minister Mykola Azarov told local media last week that the measure is temporary
“but necessary” for the domestic auto industry to get back on its feet. As soon
as the situation stabilizes, he said, it will be canceled.
