Volodymyr Zelenskyy: The bill on simplified customs clearance of cars with European number plates is a reasonable compromise

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy supports the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada in the first reading of amendments to the Tax and Customs Codes of Ukraine, which provide for preferential customs clearance of cars with European registration.

The President has repeatedly called on people's deputies to elaborate and approve an affordable mechanism for customs clearance of cars imported from Europe.

"This bill is a reasonable compromise, which, on the one hand, will help protect the owners of already imported low-cost cars, and on the other - will protect our environment from harmful emissions, but most importantly - it will finally allow state registration of these cars and ensure the necessary safety of all road movement participants," Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted.
