Security Council asks Prosecutor General to react to government’s failures
The government’s failed to fulfill its decision to administer value added tax
The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine has sent a letter to Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko with a request to react to the government’s failure to fulfill its December 28/2006 decision to administer value added tax, Andriy Pyshnyy, deputy secretary of the Security Council, said at a press briefing on Wednesday, according to the President`s press-office.
Pyshnyy reprimanded the Yanukovych cabinet for accumulating a record VAT debt of about UAH 8.07 billion. He said no official information on VAT rebates was available and added that the cabinet must publish such data. He also said a draft tax code proposed by the cabinet of ministers “does not resolve the problem but conserves it.”
