Smuggling has knocked out Ukrainian customs as 112 Ukraine reported citing President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during the extraordinary session of the parliament.

“Over the two months of the new year, the non-compliance of the state budget is almost 16 billion hryvnia ($642.67 million). We should tell truth. 13 of them are the fail of the incomes from the customs. The business gives signals helplessly that smuggling has not disappeared completely and we were told about decisive and uncompromising fight against it. And now it seems that in this fight, smuggling knocked out the customs. And it should be changed, it is much-needed. The customs should collect, I’m sorry, not likes on Facebook but funds to the treasury,” Zelensky said.
