While Ukraine fights for its sovereignty, any support to the Ukrainian economy is crucial: whether it is humanitarian aid, the resurrection of business, or investments into the economy. Ukraine is striving for any such support and, therefore, creates favorable conditions and opportunities both for new business and for the humanitarian aid flow: from tax and customs easements to moratorium for the tax and other inspections.
