Poroshenko noted that these laws are a “complicated compromise” between the state and the owners of the “cars with EU number plates”, UNIAN reports.
“He signed the Laws No. 4847 and No. 8,848, which legalize cars with European number plates imported in violation of customs and tax laws. All funds from this, from the first to the last hryvnia, will go to the Pension Fund to cover its deficit, to index pensions, to pay off in the first place to those who receive a minimum pension. This is clearly and unequivocally stipulated by law,” the statement reads.
The president called on owners of cars with EU number plates to take advantage of the preferential customs clearance and refrain from protest actions.
