Head of State Fiscal Service Maksym Nefodov urged citizens of Ukraine not to panic because of the export restrictions or possible shortage of imported goods in Ukraine. He said this during a briefing that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

"Some panic or cause for concern that Ukrainian exporters will not be able to export their products or that we will have a critical shortage of imports are untrue. All countries, our neighbors, as well as Ukraine, understand that international flows of goods and raw materials are extremely important both for a healthy economy and for the functioning of a socially responsible business, which not only pays taxes but also cares about its employees," Nefodov said.

At the same time, he warned that logistics could be slowed down, for example, due to the sanitation of cars and temperature controls of drivers that are applied at the border.

As we reported earlier, on March 16, Ukraine temporarily closed about a hundred checkpoints and banned entry into Ukraine for foreigners and stateless persons.
