Belarus has imposed licensing for a number of imported goods from Ukraine.

"According to recent information, Belarus has imposed an individual licensing regime for imports of a number of Ukrainian goods: confectionery, chocolate, juices, beer, chipboard and fiberboard, wallpaper, toilet paper and packaging, bricks, ceramic tiles, glass ampoules, agricultural machinery for sowing, washing machines, and furniture. This decision was approved by resolution No. 292 of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated May 26," Ukrainian Deputy Minister for Development of Economy, Trade, and Agriculture and Trade Envoy Taras Kachka wrote on Facebook.

"Such actions are unreasonable and discriminatory. The individual licensing mode means manual control of imports of Ukrainian products to Belarus. The government is consulting with manufacturers to eliminate the negative consequences of the Belarusian government's discriminatory actions," he added.
