According to the results of 2017 increase in the import of cement clinkers from Russia to Ukraine almost two two compared to year 2016 – almost 0.9 million tonnes with a value of 32.9 million to $ 0.5 million tons with a cost of 14.4 million dollars.

It is expected that the government’s decision will reduce the dependence of Ukrainian economy on imports and increase domestic production of cement clinkers”, – stated in the message of Ministry of economic development.
