The commission proposed to temporarily postpone their introduction until Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada passes a special bill to avoid possible negative consequences for the agricultural sector.

"Soon the government would send a bill on measures to diversify fertilizer supplies via the reduction of imports duty on most popular types of fertilizers (ammonium nitrate, urea and urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN) to lawmakers," the commission said.

The commission said that it is waiting for an application from the Agricultural Policy and Food Ministry asking to suspend the antidumping measures imposed to consider it before the duties take effect.

The statement does not have information about the size of the duties. According to the report, the key conclusions of the Economic Development and Trade Ministry on the results of the antidumping investigation into imports of some types of fertilizers to Ukraine from Russia are evidence of the dumping fact.
