“Seven thousand kiosks have currently received permission to work and
paid tens of millions of hryvnias to the budget. With respect to other
kiosks that were not registered, we will conduct a campaign on their
removal,” he said during a phone line in Kyiv on Monday, Aug. 13.
Popov said that Kyiv would gradually conduct a campaign to legalize
the work of kiosks and remove those that are operating illegally.
As reported, on January 26, 2012, Kyiv City Council took a decision
that would help legalize the activities of kiosks in the Ukrainian
capital. According to the decision, kiosks in Kyiv will operate until
January 1, 2013 if their owners sign agreements on the payment of a
share in the development of the city’s facilities. The owners had to
sign such agreements by April 1.
