In late September 2014 several legal regulations changing the taxation procedure for certain  transactions with regard to the ATO conducted in Ukraine came into effect.

Thus, the Law of Ukraine "On amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine to simplify the importation of  de- fense products"15 as well as the Law of Ukraine "On amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine to  exempt the imports of defense products from taxation"16 exempts transactions for the import of  defense products to the customs territory of Ukraine and their supply in the customs territory of  Ukraine from VAT during the special period, the emergency state and the ATO period.

The list of such products shall be established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
