Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced that the State Border Service would completely
change the state border management system. In particular, two out of nine services
will remain at the border: the State Border Service and the State Fiscal
Service (the customs). The Premier informed on Thursday, August 20, during a
visit of the State Border Service of Ukraine at the Boryspil
checkpoint of the state border of Ukraine.
The Head of
Government noted that reduction of the quantity of regulatory services is part
of the visa liberalisation action plan: "We have made an inventory of what
we have at checkpoints all around the country. How many services monitor one
citizen or a car when crossing the border line. So, overall
number of various services sitting at the state border makes up 9, which is
stressed that these changes would simplify frontier crossing and reduce
corruption. "Less services there are, less money will be collected at the
border", urged the Prime Minister.
