Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko ordered to draft a new law, which will change the system of transportation fees, having included it in the fuel cost. The initiative belongs to 
Minister for Internal Affairs Yurii Lutsenko. According to him, in the world the owners of vehicles are taxed for consumed gasoline or diesel but not according to engine size.

“It is necessary to levy a tax on the quantity of gasoline or diesel a person buys at a filling station. Either Mercedes, or Zhygul, or trailer – one should pay as much as he consumes, and this money is meant for the construction of roads,” Yurii Lutsenko stressed.

In his turn, Head of the State Tax Administration Serhii Buriak told that Prime Minister had assigned 2-3 months to draft the new principle of levying transportation fees. Serhii Buriak noted that the transfer period would take a year, and that the new system would come into force not earlier than 2010. To make it happened, a corresponding law should be passed in the first half of 2009.
