Ilyashev & Partners has successfully protected the interests of Ukrainian Match Factory LLC in an anti-dumping investigation on the importation of matches originating in the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation into Ukraine.
According to Ilyashev & Partners, on May 22, 2020, following a ten-month investigation, the Interagency Commission for International Trade “upheld a decision on the application of a final anti-dumping duty of 31.32% on imports of matches originating from Belarus and of 45.79% on imports originating from Russia." According to the firm, “in addition, the Interagency Commission for International Trade dismissed the written commitments lodged by the Belarusian Forest Company OJSC on the reconsideration of their prices or termination of exports under the dumped prices to the customs territory of Ukraine. The final anti-dumping duty will be charged throughout a five-year period. The customs authorities will charge the anti-dumping duty regardless of the settlement of other taxes and duties. The application of the final anti-dumping measures will not create obstacles to the customs clearance of products.”
The Ilyashev & Partners’ team was led by Partner Olena Omelchenko.
