It appears that this action by Ukraine may have been in response to a measure taken by Uzbekistan. "The Uzbek government violates the intergovernmental agreement on free trade, namely by setting excise duty rates on excisable goods manufactured by enterprises of Uzbekistan, and on merchandise, imported into the territory of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which make impossible the export of cars from Ukraine to this country", explained the Ukrautoprom Association (Ukrainian Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association) in a report. According to that report, the introduced excise tax on imported cars increased their value at least by 50%, which makes them uncompetitive in the domestic market of Uzbekistan.
