Import tariff

On 22 February 2013, according to numerous and consistent press reports, a draft bill N2320-2321 was submitted to the Ukrainian parlament.
It would introduce an import duty on second-hand garments (10 EUR/kg). The measure was filed by Vitaliy Nemilostiviy, a Member of Parliament, who expects that the duty would raise UAH1 billion per year and would curb the imports of clothes declared as second-hand.
