“Last year, Ukraine imported 1,495 million tons of nitrogen fertilizers, NPK 1,399 million and somewhere 368 thousand of ammophos. The cost of imports of these products amounted to, according to conservative estimates, about 30.5 billion UAH. Could we avoid such expenses? Of course. We would have completely replaced 1,495 million for its fertilizers and would save the state 12 billion. We would be 900 thousand tons of NPK put and saved about 9 billion hryvnia. Thus, of the 30 billion 21 billion take – that’s what the savings were. And pay taxes, wages and so on,” he said.
