The combat against crimes committed in the field of tax evasion is a top priority task of the Ministry of Revenue and Duties of Ukraine. 

«This is a transitory period. You know pretty well that we cannot make Switzerland out of Ukraine during only one day. We should get ready for hard tedious work and persistent efforts.  It is necessary to find the ways of further economic advancement to be agreed with the business. This means, particularly, the introduction of new norms and legislative regulations, ease of administration of some taxes», - Ihor Belous underscored.
