The United Kingdom announced the decision to reduce all tariffs to zero and remove all quotas on imports of Ukrainian goods thus saving thousands of jobs during the war.

“I am grateful to the United Kingdom and personally to Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his prompt and positive response to our request for trade liberalization. Right now it is especially important for the support of our state. Britain has announced the abolition of all duties and quotas on imports of Ukrainian goods. This will allow us to save thousands of jobs during the war and ensure a significant intensification of economic relations with Britain. We expect similar decision from other partners,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening address on April 26.

He emphasized that the step is important not only for Ukraine and partner countries. “This adds stability to global markets, especially the food market, which is one step away from a large-scale price crisis due to Russia's war against Ukraine,” the President noted.

As Zelensky stressed, there is only one way to avoid the crisis: to strengthen cooperation and put pressure on Russia.

As reported, the United Kingdom announced the abolition of all duties and quotas on imports of Ukrainian goods. These include flour, grain, dairy products, poultry and semi-finished products, tomato paste, honey, corn, wheat, juices, mushrooms, sugar and more.
