There are two sources of such statistics. It originates from the Ministry for Revenues and Fees. Then, the ministry told the State Statistics Service to alter their figures.
The ministry cited United Nations guidelines for the new rules that exclude some types of data (namely, re-exported gasoline) from the national figures. But the reasoning does not stand up to criticism because the guidelines, in fact, say this data should also be kept separately.
So why would the ministry need to hide obscure national statistics from the public eye? We think we have answers.
