Ukraine decided to impose anti-dumping duty in the amount 31,33%. About it reports the Internet-the edition «European true» with reference to its sources.

The new duties will apply to other prepared foods containing cocoa produced in Russia. The relevant decision in the next few days will be published in «Governmental courier» (the official publication of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine) and will enter into force, the newspaper writes.

Earlier on Friday it became known that Ukraine introduces new anti-dumping duties in the amount of 31.84% on the import of two types of Russian nitric fertilizers — carbamide and carbamide-ammonia mixture (CAS). Thus, according to the Ministry of economic development and trade of Ukraine, today Russia is a major supplier of nitrogen fertilizers in the country with a share of 80-90% of the total.

Ukraine in 2014 has imposed five-year anti-dumping duties on imports of Russian fertilizer, but it applies only to ammonium nitrate. Rates were set at 20,51-of 36.03%. Russia contested this decision in the WTO. However, Ukrainian farmers have shifted to urea and urea-ammonium nitrate — other types of nitrogen fertilizers imported from Russia.
