During the years of conflict with the Russian Federation (annexation of the Crimea and the fighting in the Donbass) Ukraine has paid for Russian nitrogen fertilizers 550,605 million dollars.
This is stated in the customs statistics of the State fiscal service.
In particular, in 2014, imported Russian mineral fertilizers on 160,301 million dollars, in 2015 – at 169,997 million dollars, in 2016 – 166,730 million dollars.
In January-February 2017 Ukraine imported nitrogen fertilizers to 53,587 million dollars.
Recall, 27 December 2017, the Interdepartmental Commission on international trade (mkmt) has imposed anti-dumping duties in the amount of 4.19%-31,84% on imports of urea and UAN (urea-ammonium nitrate) from Russia with March 2017 for 5 years until March 2022.
This decision should enter into force in March 2017, but was suspended mkmt in February. In August 2016, the Union of chemists of Ukraine appealed to the Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman and the Ministry of economic development and trade to impose duties on imports of urea and UAN (urea-ammonium nitrate) from Russia, and also to increase existing duties on imports of ammonium nitrate from Russia.
