The period of temporary restriction on the ethyl alcohol exports has been reduced

On May 13, the Government has approved the amendments to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine № 1109, which allow the ethyl alcohol exports from May 15, not from June, 1, as it has been decided before.

This decision has become the result of ability of Ukrainian ethyl alcohol enterprises to provide our country with the required volumes of this product.

Also, the adopted amendments allow the State Enterprise “Ukrspyrt” to produce disinfectants from ethyl alcohol under a simplified procedure, temporarily established by the Tax Code of Ukraine for the quarantine period.

Let us remember you that on March 23, the Government temporarily restricted ethyl alcohol exports in order to prevent spread of COVID-19 in Ukraine.

For reference:

According to the data, provided by the State Statistics Service, during January-February 2020, the exports of the ethyl alcohol amounted to 1,1 million litres.
