The Cabinet of Ministers has approved a list of goods whose exports and imports are subject to licensing, as well as quotas on exports and imports of some goods for 2022.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, the relevant decision was made during a government meeting today, December 29.
Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers actually banned the export of unprocessed and semi-processed gold and silver or in powder form, except for bank metals.
According to the explanatory note to the document, since 2013, the government has annually banned the export of gold and silver to avoid their mass export from Ukraine.
At the same time, the quota for exports in 2022 of waste or scrap of precious metals or metals clad with precious metals amounted to 2 tons.
In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers approved a list of ozone-depleting substances and fluorinated greenhouse gases, the export and import of which are subject to licensing. These include carbon tetrachloride, methyl chloroform, 1-trichloroethane, trifluoromethane, bromomethane, chlorodifluoromethane, some medicines, organic synthetic dyes, varnishes and paints based on synthetic polymers, cosmetics, hair care products, hygiene products. shaving products and more.
Licensing of imports of agricultural products and products from the Republic of Northern Macedonia under the tariff quota under the Free Trade Agreement between the countries has also been established.
With this decision, the government also established licensing for the export of anthracite coal.
Situation with coal reserves:
Ukraine has been experiencing an acute shortage of thermal coal since the summer of 2014, when hostilities in the east of the country completely lost control of the part of Donbass where most of the mines are located. After that, the country began to import coal.
On November 1, 2021, the Russian Federation suspended the export of thermal coal to Ukraine.
These are coal grade A (anthracite) and T (lean). Such coal was imported by DTEK (Luhansk TPP, Kryvyi Rih TPP), Donbasenergo (Slovyanska TPP) and Technova (Darnytsya TPP, Sumy TPP, Chernihiv TPP).
In January-November 2021, Ukraine increased the foreign exchange costs for imports of coal and anthracite by 31% compared to the same period last year – up to 2.068 billion dollars.
Today, coal reserves at the country’s thermal power plants remain critically low.
