Ukraine will cancel the blockade of the occupied territories as soon as the fighters return to Ukraine stolen by the company. This was stated at a meeting of the regional development Council, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, reports “GORDON”.
According to him, the decision of the Ukrainian authorities to suspend trade with ORDO was of forced nature.
“We had the decision of the Council of national security and defense to temporarily suspend transport links with the occupied territory. It was of a forced nature. Limited exchange of goods may recover, as soon as Russia and its puppets will return to the Ukrainian owners and the Ukrainian state stolen plants”, – said Poroshenko.
He noted that Ukraine carried out the exchange of goods with the plants in the temporarily occupied territories, who paid taxes and were registered in Ukraine.
We will remind, on March 15 at the NSDC meeting, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko decided to temporarily completely stop transport – automobile and railway – from the occupied territories of Donbass.
After that , the Council supported the proposal of the President in connection with the seizure of the Ukrainian enterprises and the worsening situation in the zone of the military operation in the Donbass.
As stated by Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, energy and economic blockade of the Donbas occurred not in the interests of Ukraine , and threatened rapid economic growth.
According to calculations of the Ministry of Finance, the loss of 40 businesses ORDO as a result of the ban on the movement of goods across the demarcation line in the Donbass will deprive the Ukrainian budget about UAH 2 billion in tax revenues.
