“Return of fuel tax is an opportunity to replenish Ukraine’s state budget,” fuel expert
All around the world, fuel taxes are quite a powerful source of budget income. There are targeted programs to support public transport and road maintenance at the expense of these funds. The return of fuel tax is necessary for the budget.
Sergei Kuyun, Director of Consulting Group A95, made this statement at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
