President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has vetoed the Tax Code. He told about this today.

President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych said that he has put a veto on the Tax Code, adopted previously by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. "Today, I have vetoed the Tax Code," - he said to journalists on Tuesday in the Boryspil airport before flying to Astana for a summit of OSCE.

Viktor Yanukovych said that the Government has established a working group on improvement of the Tax Code and amendments to the document might be sent to parliament on Thursday.

"We have agreed that the working group, which is now established by the Government with the participation of representatives of the President, with the participation of representatives of small and medium business today and tomorrow will work out amendments in the Tax Code, which will be considered by me on Thursday (on December 2). And if they meet the requirements, I will sign them and file into a parliament. Today I have put a veto, and I believe that the situation which is currently formed, is reasonable for us to create a real document that meets the objective to modernize the economy and to withdraw it out of the shadows"- RBC-Ukraine cites the President as saying.

Beginning the meeting with the economic bloc of the Government and the Presidential Administration at the airport Boryspil, Viktor Yanukovych said: "The Code should be modified in some sections, and I would like to hear from you about these concrete sections today," - said the President.

Viktor Yanukovych instructed the officials to work on sections of the Tax Code to be changed until Thursday. According to the President, it is necessary to modify the sections of the Tax Code, which relate to the protection of the rights of commodity producers and business.

01:59 pm The decision of President to veto Tax Code may result in personnel changes, according to the Speaker of parliament Volodymyr Lytvyn. He said that today or tomorrow the leadership of Parliament will have a meeting with Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, "regarding the decision to put a veto."

Entrepreneurs will continue to demand the resignation of the Cabinet of Ministers or its part, according to a spokesman of the Central Staff of the Salvation of Ukrainian business Sviatoslav Shvetsov.

According to him, entrepreneurs, at least, will demand the resignation of the government’s bloc responsible for the development of the Tax Code - Finance Minister Fedor Yaroshenko, Deputy Prime Minister Serhii Tihipko, head of the State Committee for Entrepreneurship Mykhailo Brodskyi and Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, who "did not read the Tax Code completely”.

Sviatoslav Shvetsov also reported that businessmen will insist on the participation of representatives of small and medium businesses in the development of a new Tax Code, reports Zerkalo nedeli.

02:32 pm The Regions Party is waiting for a clear wording of the decision of the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych on the Tax Code, according to the Chairman of the faction Regions Party Oleksandr Yefremov, at a briefing in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

According to the Regions Party, the President of Ukraine instructed special committee and the Cabinet of Ministers to work out the amendments and to submit to the session hall until Thursday. "If these amendments are voted, then we will send the document to the President for signature, and will work at the budget process", - said Oleksandr Yefremov.

Oleksandr Yefremov said that the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has not vetoed the Tax Code completely.

"This is a partial veto," - he said, adding that the President did not sign the Tax Code, but sent it to parliament without the signature with the relevant amendments.
