The European Union has called on the Verkhovna Rada to refuse an extension of export duties on scrap metal.

In a post on Facebook, the EU Delegation to Ukraine stated: “The Verkhovna Rada plans to consider an extension of export duties on metal scrap today, which would break an agreement with the EU to remove these duties. While we acknowledge the difficult situation the Ukrainian steel industry is faced with, the extension of export duties on scrap metal is not a sustainable solution, and is not in line with Ukraine's international commitments”.

The EU Delegation to Ukraine said they hope that Ukrainian MPs “will respect the international commitments that Ukraine has publicly made and will avoid opening another bilateral trade dispute with the EU.”
