The important news of the month was the transfer of the imposition of a fine for storing fuel for farmers. The prehistory of this was the warning of the agrarians about a national strike if they were ignored. From July 1, changes in the Tax Code were to come into effect, in connection with which farmers had to obtain a license for storing fuel and register the buildings where fuel is stored, and the land under them, as a filling station (gas station). The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine postponed until December 31, 2019 the application of fines to business entities in the event of storage of fuel without a corresponding license.
In connection with the sharp onset of steady hot weather, the farmers of Ukraine announce the start of harvesting from the last days of June. In the south, they plan to start cleaning since June 18. The regions that are located in the northern part of Ukraine will start cleaning later, in July, although earlier than the traditional terms.
With kind regards, team of GC “Agroliga”.
