KIEV, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian Ministry of Revenues and Duties confirmed on Tuesday that humanitarian cargo from Poland for participants of protest rallies had arrived in Ukraine, but was still at Kiev’s customs house since Monday “awaiting necessary permissions and documents”.
Earlier, Ukrainian media outlets said a truck with 10 tons of humanitarian cargo from Poland had “got stuck” at Ukraine customs because of customs clearance difficulties. It was reported that the batch consisted of warm clothing, sleeping bags, fold-out beds, bandaging material among other articles for protesters.
The revenues ministry dismissed accusations of its blocking the customs clearance. According to the ministry, the customs clearance procedure for humanitarian cargoes takes four hours “on condition there is a decision declaring these cargoes humanitarian, and goods as well as customs declarations and other necessary documents are produced in accordance with the established procedure”.
“At present, there are no cargoes which customs clearance would be delayed for at least an hour,” the ministry press service stressed.
Last year, more than 10,000 tons of humanitarian cargoes worth more than 41 million rubles were brought into Ukraine, and cargoes worth $1.6 million were from Poland.
