Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk instructed the State Fiscal Service to solve the problem of existing of a black grain market and buying crops for cash and to take immediate steps to root out such illegal grain market. He announced at the Government session on Wednesday, August 12.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed: "There have emerged frequent cases when current harvest is purchased by cash. And they say the price is even higher than by “cash free”. So, it is a scheme either to legalize laundered money or any other scheme, perhaps, to refund value added tax".

The Head of Government commissioned the State Fiscal Service in synergy with grain market operators to take urgent steps to deshadow this market "and find out what's happening in the market of purchasing grains and why such significant quantities of off-the book cash circulate in the market".
