There are two factors that complicate the issue or exporting a car to the Ukraine currently. One is the political turmoil in the area due to the conflict between Russian and Ukraine. A related concern is that there may be sanctions imposed by the U.S. that will cause more restrictive trade agreements in the region, making it more difficult (and expensive) to ship a car to the country.
The second factor is that the laws which govern car imports in Ukraine are confusing, which is made worse by the fact that the Ukrainian government reversed course on a law that would have lowered the tax on imported vehicles. We’ll go over the details below, but it’s important to keep in mind that there are likely future changes ahead that will affect import taxes and laws in Ukraine.
