On Wednesday, May 25, during a Government meeting Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman commissioned to develop, together with the Parliament, a bill aimed to overcome the violations in the export of nuts and other agricultural products that the processing companies purchase from the population.

"I ask you together with the committees, parliamentary factions to develop a Law that envisages how to resolve it. Thereby, the public policy will be protected, and the business, including processing industry, will develop. There will appear new initiatives, types, the centers of collecting the appropriate products, facilities with extensive processing, then we are capable of manufacturing other produce with these components. We are capable of doing it. And just because there exist the privileged who exert pressure, we are losing opportunities for the development of the national economy. We should severely punish for that," said Volodymyr Groysman.

The PM announced that the situation with the export of nuts was the pure racket, in which certain state institutions had been engaged. “I consider such behaviour as unacceptable in any normal civilized society: to pressure on a business, to create problems, as a consequence to get a bribe and let go. It means racket, pure racket. All of them should be sent back to the past", he said.

The Prime Minister stressed that the Government would ensure control over execution by the law enforcement agencies of a Resolution "On amendments to the exhaustive list of grounds on which review (re-examination) of goods, commercial vehicles can be conducted by the customs authorities of Ukraine". In addition, information about the delay of cargoes production for export will be published, he added.
