“VAT on domestic [tickets] sales should be lifted. No other solution has been invented. This is not that easy: the Tax Code has to be amended,” Ukrainian Vice Premier and Infrastructure Minister Borys Kolesnikov said at a briefing in the Italian region of Abruzzo while answering a question about when the prices of air tickets are to be lowered.
Kolesnikov said he hopes the issue will be considered as soon as parliament opens its next session.
“We will change the Tax Code as early as at the first meeting of the Verkhovna Rada’s September session,” he said.
