The Cabinet of Ministers and large tobacco companies have found a solution regarding the so-called "tobacco amendments" in the law introducing the single account for paying taxes and duties, Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk has said.
"If we comment on the situation with tobacco companies, we met with them last week, got everything out in the open and have already found some solution that we hope will be implemented," he said during a press briefing in Mariupol on Tuesday.
