On the agenda of the State Duma on Thursday is the ratification of the protocol to the agreement with South Ossetia on the regime of trade in goods.

Earlier, the Russian Cabinet submitted for ratification to the State Duma a protocol that simplifies the registration of oil products export to South Ossetia.

It is proposed to cancel the temporary periodic customs declaration when exporting oil products from Russia to South Ossetia. The Cabinet of Ministers proposed ratifying the protocol on amendments to the agreement between the governments of Russia and South Ossetia on the regime of trade in goods.

The protocol was signed on May 6, 2019 in Tskhinval. It provides for that when declaring a number of goods exported from the Russian Federation to South Ossetia, with the exception of natural gas, temporary periodic customs declaration established by the legislation of the Russian Federation is not applied. At the same time, temporary customs declarations for goods, the actual export of which was not made, are considered not to be submitted.

“The protocol begins to be applied temporarily after 30 days from the date of signing in order to ensure the immediate organization of the supply of petroleum products in 2019 without applying temporary periodic customs declaration,” the project’s explanation says.
