The bill on increase of the terms for transit cars was not approved by the committee
The names of the MPs, who blocked the adoption of the amendments important for owners of cars with foreign registration, have become known.
Today, during the meeting of the Committee on Taxation and Customs Policy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the adoption of the decision on the bill №1393 "On prolongation of transit traffic periods for road transport" was failed.
Members of the Committee lacked a few votes for the positive decision on the law that affects the interests of owners of cars with foreign registration.
Representatives of the "Samopomich" party did not support the decision. In particular, those are deputies - members of the "Samopomich" faction Andriy Zhurzhiy and Tetyana Ostrikova (deputies Antonyschak, Horvat, Voznyuk, Holovko, Hereha, Kryshyn, Sydorchyuk, Yuryk and Prodan voted for the decision).
The essence of the bill is actual legalization of the use of the EU cars by residents of border arears of Ukraine without the need for costly customs clearance in Ukraine. To do this, people have every 5-10 days to cross the border which complicates the work at checkpoints and creates possibilities for corruption. The bill provided for an increase of the duty-free transit period from 5-10 to 30 days.
