Groysman promises to fight against shadow flows at customs
Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has stated he considers the situation at customs to be "abnormal" and promised to fight against shadow flows.
"I think today the situation at customs is not normal," Groysman said at a meeting of the National Reforms Council in Kyiv.
He said that the target of revenues from customs offices stands at UAH 207 billion per year and the State Fiscal Service overfulfils this plan, however "there is a deficit of the Pension Fund."
"And we know that there are shadow flows at the Fiscal Service, at customs, which should have gone to the national budget, but they are not received – this is a challenge for all of us to put things in order in this sphere and account each hryvnia," Groysman said.
The premier said the president and the parliament fully support the issue of restoring order at customs.
