MOSCOW, November 28? (ITAR-TASS). Russia intends to introduce a duty-free regime for the import of certain goods from South Ossetia and Abkhazia. The Russian government at its meeting on Thursday will consider the issue of ratification of the relevant agreements, the cabinet’s press service told Itar-Tass.
In particular, the agreements with both republics provide for “duty-free import of goods with preserving waivers on a number of most sensitive items for the parties.” The parties also agree “to levy export duties on a number of products in the cases stipulated by the Russian legislation.” However, the “export customs duties do not apply to gasoline and diesel fuel intended for limited consumption in the territory of South Ossetia and Abkhazia,” the government said.
According to the authors of the document, the agreements are aimed at “resolving the situation with the use of tariff regulation measures in respect of goods from South Ossetia and Abkhazia, after Russia recognised the independence of these republics.”
Russia recognised South Ossetia and Abkhazia as sovereign and independent states in August 2008.
