Ukraine’s interdepartmental commission for international trade has decided to introduce antidumping duties on imported cement clinker and Portland cement of 115 per cent for goods originating in Russia, 57 per cent for Belarus and 94.5 per cent for Moldova, according to the Economic Development and Trade Ministry. The duties will reportedly be levied for five years.

The final antidumping duty will be charged as a percentage of the customs value and in addition to the import duty. The duty will be placed into effect from 30 days after the publication of the notice in the Uriadovy Kurier newspaper.

In a statement, the ministry said that "the share of imports of cement clinkers and Portland cement from Russia, Belarus and Moldova in the total volume of imports of these goods to Ukraine throughout the entire period of research had grown steadily, indicating the intention to further increase the volume of dumped imports from these countries."
