NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On March 14, 2013, the Ukrainian government approved the imposition of a duty for 36 months on the imports of new cars in HS codes 8703 22 10 00 and 8703 23 19 10 (see related GTA measure Nr. 4256 referred to below). However, it was found that the exclusion of the hybrid cars from the scope of the import duty 'will not have a negative impact on the domestic producers'.

Imports of cars with a hybrid propulsion system will be exempted from the import duty until February 28, 2014.
