Ukrainian blitzkrieg "Elopak": customs always gives good ...

The recent decisions of the Russian leadership regarding the entry of Ukraine into the EU economic space leave no doubt: Russia will take all measures established by international agreements to protect its market from unscrupulous European suppliers. Meanwhile, Ukraine has long become a kind of "black hole" through which products penetrate into Russia, which is not only not Ukrainian in origin, but also simply ruining Russian producers.

Russia's response to the sanctions imposed by the European Union, the United States and some other countries, in the form of a ban on the import of a number of food products from these countries, caused inspiration in the camp of domestic producers and processors of agricultural products. Why, for the first time in several decades, the Russian peasant seemed to be able to dramatically increase production ...

In addition, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev 19 September signed a document on the introduction of customs duties on Ukrainian goods. These fees will be charged only if the Kiev authorities violate the agreements reached earlier and begin to apply the articles of the economic part of the association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union earlier than 1 in January 2016 of the year.

Prior to this event, Russian President Vladimir Putin personally held a meeting of the State Council, at which specific decisions were made that would dramatically increase the share of Russian food in the market. After such attention, it would seem, the Russian manufacturer can only invest and delight the buyer with its high-quality products ...

European and Ukrainian schemers found a common language ...

Since Soviet times, domestic foodstuffs have been lost in terms of packaging and design. The quality was almost always higher than any criticism, the level of content of all kinds of harmful substances, as a rule, was even much lower than permissible.

In recent years, due to the efforts of the domestic processing industry, the lag in this industry has been largely overcome. Russian food products, which are in good demand, in quality and beautiful packaging has increasingly begun to replace imported products on counters.

Since it was a question of a huge consumer market with more than 140 million people, foreign competitors were not indifferent to it. Not being able to defeat the Russian manufacturer in a fair fight, they began to use such methods that you couldn’t just call unfair ...

And Ukraine helped and helps them in this. It should be noted that for all the stay of this former Soviet republic in the free trade zone of the Commonwealth of Independent States, a typical algorithm has been developed for the illegal entry of foreign companies into the Russian market.

In short, it consists of the following: a foreign company first creates a “daughter” on the territory of Ukraine, then imports its products or raw materials there, often as “give-and-take”.

Raw materials are raw materials, materials, semi-finished products, components, energy, which is the property of one enterprise (customer) and transferred to another business entity (producer) for the production of finished products, with subsequent transfer or return of such products or their parts to their owner or his instructions to another person.

After that, products or raw materials are obtained from the relevant Ukrainian authorities, documents indicating that they are of allegedly Ukrainian origin. Accordingly, when crossing the Ukrainian-Russian border, such goods are not subject to customs duties, which, of course, reduces their price, increases competitiveness and at the same time leads to the ruin of the Russian manufacturer. Here is the Slavic "brotherhood" ...

It would seem that the Federal Customs Service, given the highest level of competence of its employees, would have no difficulty in finding the truth and blocking the way for fake “Ukrainian” goods to the Russian market. However, the reality is a completely different picture. And it remains only to guess why the customs officers do not hear either the vote of the President of the Russian Federation or the instructions of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Packing "a spoon of tar" in the dairy sea

The Russian dairy industry produced 2013, 30 million tons of milk in 7 year. After the introduction by the Russian side of the ban on the import of many types of milk and dairy products associated with the response to the sanctions of Western countries, the production of domestic dairy products began to show an upward trend. And, of course, these products should be provided with high-quality packaging for transportation and further placement in retail chains. And then the financial-industrial group “Elopak / Ferd Group” from Norway, represented in Russia by the subsidiary company Elopak, appears on the scene.

Proud Scandinavians have already won over 50% of the carton packaging market for fresh dairy products and their share continues to grow.

Only in the first half of 2014 of the year, the sales growth of the financial and industrial group Elopak over the same period last year exceeded 20% with a tendency to further increase.

By the way, back in 2007, the Federal Antimonopoly Service in its study noted that Elopak FPG sells packaging material at dumping prices.

In 2013 — 2014, the FPG “Elopak” in leased premises installed and launched equipment with a declared production capacity of over 1,6 billion packs, which exceeds 80% of the volume of the corresponding packaging market in the Russian Federation. In order to implement its plans to monopolize the FPG market, Elopak temporarily offers Russian producers of drinking dairy products such packaging prices that are at the level of the costs of the Russian producer only for (!) Raw materials.

For example, the average prices in Russia for 1 packaging per liter, taking into account the dominant position in the Russian market of Elopak FIG, are 40 − 45 euros per thousand. In the EU countries (including our closest neighbors - Finland, the Baltic countries, Poland), Elopak sells the same package for 55 − 65 euro per thousand.

What allows "Elopak" to offer its products in Russia at such low dumping prices?

There are no miracles here: “Elopak” simply imports from the Ukrainian factory “Elopak-Fastov”, which belongs to the same financial and industrial group, products, where the cardboard is processed into finished packaging. It, Russian manufacturers suggest, in quantities estimated at hundreds of millions of pieces a year, has already been imported into Russia for about 10 (!!!) years without paying duties on the basis of documents that do not correspond to their true origin and are supposedly produced in Ukraine.

Surprisingly, however, such an aggressive trade policy of the Elopak financial and industrial group still remains without the attention of the relevant Russian departments. But a similar situation a few years ago led to the closure of Elopak's competitors in Europe and Canada: someone was bankrupt, someone was bought for a pittance and his equipment was destroyed so that a new competitor would not appear. And this is called food security?

Mysterious role of the Federal Customs Service of Russia

Back in September 2013, the Russian packaging manufacturers applied to the Russian Federal Customs Service claiming that Ukraine was recognized as the country of origin of packaging, as this allows the Elopak FPG to use a zero customs rate, thus lowering the customs value of cardboard blanks imported from Ukraine. And this, in turn, is a blatant violation of Russian customs legislation.

The share of the cost of imported raw materials - cardboard and polyethylene produced by the EU (commodity goods) - is 70 − 80% in the cost of packaging, which directly contradicts the ad valorem share rule, which was paid to the attention of the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation.

The rule of "ad valorem share", when the percentage of the cost of used materials or value added reaches a fixed limit in the price ex-factory of the supplied goods.

The direct damage to the budget of Russia from such illegal actions of the FPG “Elopak” amounts, by the minimal estimates only, to millions (!) Euros, which the state does not receive in the form of customs payments and taxes.

If we add to this the revenues of Russian packaging manufacturers, which are constantly decreasing due to the attack of Elopak, and, as a result, the reduction of their tax deductions to budgets of different levels, the picture becomes completely bleak ...

In the event of failure to take measures, the social tensions will sharply increase in domestic enterprises - packaging manufacturers, since a large reduction in jobs will be coming.

In the meantime, no answers have been received on the appeals of domestic manufacturers either from the FCS of Russia or from the TsTU FCS. The applicants are only informed that "the inspection activities are carried out to carry out customs operations with the above goods." Recall that this epic has been going on for more than (!) A year ...

The last response of the Central Customs Administration of the Federal Customs Service, dated 6 August 2014, generally says that the question of the validity of the provision of tariff preferences in Russia for FIG "Elopak" will be decided on the basis of certain decisions and documents of the authorized bodies of Ukraine.

An interesting picture emerges: Russian entrepreneurs in their appeals to the Federal Customs Service accuse the Elopak financial-industrial group of abuses related to the violation of the Russian customs legislation, and provide obvious evidence and calculations. And the Federal Customs Service in response reports that it will clarify the circumstances of the scandal with ... the authorized body of Ukraine, which issued certificates of origin of goods!

Simply put, Russian customs officials offer Russian manufacturers, indignant at the facts of unfair competition from the Elopak financial industrial group, which Ukraine assists in every way, to accept as the ultimate truth ... the opinion of the very Ukrainian body that our manufacturers directly suspect of falsification of documents!

It remains only to ask one question: what really is the cause of such a touching "love" of Russian customs officers to the Ukrainian authorized body that issued certificates to Elopak? Where does such "sensitivity" come from? And how does this happen correlate with the latest requirements of President R. F. Vladimir Putin regarding food security and the need for an economic breakthrough in the next two years?

Disappointing conclusions

The actions of Elopak have already led to the monopolization of this segment of the Russian market, the creation of discriminatory conditions for access to the dairy market for Russian producers of similar packaging, thereby violating Art. 10 of the Federal Law No. 26.07.2006-FZ on the Protection of Competition No. 135. Due to unfair competition, Russian enterprises are already facing the issue of shutting down production, which will lead to full control of the Norwegian FPG Elopak over a larger share of the socially significant food market in the Russian Federation, and ultimately jeopardize the country's food security and sovereignty.

The question of the vital activity of hundreds of dairy plants from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, providing Russian citizens with one of the staple foods, Russian industrialists believe, will depend on decisions made outside of Russia, namely, in Norway, which is known to be a member of NATO ...

In conclusion, it remains only to note that, in all likelihood, such schemes of ignoring Russian customs legislation apply not only to packaging, but also to many other goods coming from the territory of Ukraine. And the expense of losses of the Russian budget in this case is no longer in the millions, but in the hundreds of millions of euros ...

    Whether Russia will receive harm from actions in relation to its food industry by 90% depends on the competence and will of the state. apparatus and laws adopted by it. It is possible to adjust in such a way that there will be nowhere to put unclaimed products. But this is only if you do not succumb to the temptations of momentary commercial gain to the detriment of the prospects for the economy of your country.

        Do you think Elopak pays money to greedy customs officers? I very much doubt that a European firm will pay bribes! laughing
        Here the point is different: there are three criteria by which customs operate. The first, the most basic, is the presence of a certificate of the ST-1 form, which indicates the origin of goods from Ukraine. I understand that this certificate is available. The second criterion is the change of the commodity code according to the TN VED at the level of any of the first four digits - and this condition is fulfilled. And only in the last place - the rule of ad valorem share - the cost of cardboard and polyethylene from Europe should not exceed 50% of the cost of the final product. But where did the author get the idea that this cost exceeded 50%? To be honest, raw materials usually cost several times less than the final product.
        This last point, most likely, is what the customs officers are trying to check. They have the same path - sending official inquiries to the manufacturer in Ukraine, and, possibly, to certification bodies.
        It takes a long time. To lobby the interests of our producers, it is necessary that the Sanitary and Epidemiological Supervision authorities have established that there are some harmful impurities in the Ukrainian packaging. Something like this!

          Oldwiser 23 September 2014 13: 54
          The ratio of the cost of the final product to the cost of raw materials 2 to 1 (50% share) is typical for the middle-cutting sectors of the manufacturing industry. Packaging production is a low-grade industry. Therefore, the ad valorem coefficient there should be about 70%. But it is the tolling scheme of production that makes it possible to make such a low price - for the Ukrainian manufacturer itself, its products only cost the price of their labor costs, and the Norwegian parent company will pay off the cost of raw materials later - five years later - after the profit is exported. Or it will even be credited as a contribution to the authorized capital of the Ukrainian subsidiary.

        It turns out that we have higher taxes than in Ukraine. When trading with CIS countries, VAT is charged - 18% - on products, but VAT is refunded to the manufacturer. So, where to produce, Elopak is essentially a drum, he is looking for where it is cheaper. Although Elopaku had some kind of production back in the USSR, and it was in the Moscow region.

        Dumping - artificially bringing down the price to capture the sales market (elimination of a competitor). After the market has been seized (a monopoly position of a certain producer has been achieved), the price rises - already as much as this producer needs, and he compensates all his expenses of the past years through the monopoly superprofit.

      Are you saying that Customs MAY or may not accept a valid and officially issued certificate? I dare to assure you that over the past ten years, the customs have already taught that NOT to ACCEPT certificates at their own discretion - and this happened in the 90s and XNUMXs - is VERY expensive, the courts do not understand such things and make decisions not in favor of customs.
      This article simply lobbies the Russian manufacturer, but lobbies not very competently, directing dissatisfaction to the customs, which cannot independently prohibit the import of these products, as well as refuse to recognize the ST-1 form certificate issued by the authorized body. And it was just necessary to incite our sanitary services on the Ukrainian packaging, upon receiving a "social" order, they would instantly find in the packaging any harmful substances that make it impossible to import products into Russia.

          Disguise yourself from whom? It seems that the rest of the Czechs walk around Moscow time without disguise. Clarify please.

          Surkov rose from rank and file, showing himself in two key episodes of the consolidation of the Russian state: the mutiny in Chechnya and the collapse of Russia's largest private energy firm, Yukos. Originally from Chechnya, Surkov played a role in removing a big obstacle to the Kremlin: Chechen President Jakhar Dudayev. He also helped lay the foundations for Moscow's victory in the Second Chechen War, creating a strategy to split the rebel camp between nationalists and Islamists. His role in overthrowing the oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky marked the beginning of the consolidation of economic resources plundered by scattered business circles in the 90s.

          The basis of Surkov's power is the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU). The GRU represents both military intelligence and the army itself. Throughout Soviet and post-Soviet history, it was a counterbalance to the KGB / FSB. The GRU is larger than the FSB and has more influence abroad, although its achievements are not so well known.

          In addition, Surkov controls Gazprom, the finance ministry, the natural resources ministry, and the general prosecutor's office. However, Surkov's rival Sechin controls the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Defense, which are subordinate to most of the Russian armed forces. This limits the ability of the GRU to control the military.

          Surkov strives to weaken the positions of Sechin and the FSB, therefore he is in constant search of allies. In 2003, he entered into an alliance with the camp of reformers, formerly known as the "Piterskie", which proved its worth in the face of the financial crisis. It is this group, civilians, who will possibly assist Surkov in his attempt to inflict a final defeat on Sechin.
          Sechin Igor Ivanovich. Since May 23, 2012 - President of Rosneft. By March 2014, he owned 0,1273% of the company's shares worth almost 3 billion rubles.

    This means that she pays all taxes, including considerable VAT, and VAT refunds are negligible.
    Increasing the cost of packaging will increase the value of the product, which is not very good for me, the buyer.

    Yes, such examples can be found ...
    I want to say that everyone sins with this .. Corporations have long lost their nationality.
    And article .. it would be better to do something useful.

      the article is understandable but controversial in all its holes. More has been done for the goal "Let's ban EVERYTHING Ukrainian"
      With such success, you can dig into the Belarusian ..

      I'm not talking about that .. recently I went to "Dixie" I look at the boxes of tomatoes of a clearly Dutch type label "Republic of Ukraine". Although now there are networkers in Moscow and wool, such things still penetrate through wholesale vegetable bases, such as Biryulevskaya or Khlebnikovo, where the Caucasian speculative mafia rules ... The scheme is very simple, the goods go through Ukraine or Belarus under the guise of their manufacturers and nothing about it Only government protectionism, a barrier to duties, subsidies, etc. How the British defended their producers at an early stage in the development of industries at the dawn of capitalism. And then the Americans in the 18th century used this element of trade policy for their "economic miracle." This was done by the first head of the US Treasury, A. Hamilton. all the way to Bretton Wood. And then when the dollar became the only reserve currency The United States convinced the rest of the world that protectionism was evil.And our liberals picked up and still be guided by this. Like, if you are a raw materials appendage, then you will live no worse than developing technologies. That is why they impose FTZs, WTO and other associations with loans in "green wrappers" on everyone, and they themselves use such measures as a ban on imports from "recalcitrant countries. ", the ban on the export of strategic raw materials and technologies, subsidies and tax incentives for local producers. Therefore, free trade is only good for export, and inside there are severe restrictions and protectionism. And here, only now, Putin finally began to think about the role of the WTO, when a roasted rooster pecked ...
      That's what we need to talk about and not about packages. Of course it is impossible to produce everything from cowards to satellites. But when the share of imports goes off scale in certain segments, it is worth these industries to strictly regulate and maintain their own production.

    All that remains is to ask one question: what really is the reason for such touching “love” of Russian customs officers for the Ukrainian authorized body that issued the Elopak certificates? Where does this "sensitivity" come from?

    In customs, posts are sold and bought .... It would be foolish to buy if you then do not try to refund many times .... Maybe somewhere is not right .... but in my space near that way .... Even there is a price tag ... different truth depending on the place ... A terrible picture. I know. I don’t like it myself. But the fact ...

    Yes, it is high time to impose such high duties on ALL products from "Square" so that they would even forget about our market!

    Such articles are simply ridiculous, there are facts, it is necessary to submit papers to the prosecutor's office. And so it is clear that for money our officials will sell their souls, not only the interests of the country. Cars and watches on hand are the salary for many years of blameless service.

    Corruption, theft, dullness, lack of professionalism in public policy and the support of its own producer turned the Russian cornfield into a wasteland overgrown with thistle. Only in the distant plots can you still see the dim light, then the peasants are driving moonshine from their own arable land.

    Well, what does Ukraine have to do with it? The bosses in Russia themselves work out such schemes, and write them off to Ukraine! No shame, no conscience! If Russia allows the POSSIBILITY of using such schemes, then this is the problem of Russia, not Ukraine. The article changes responsibility from a sore head (Russian leadership) to a healthy one (Russian and Ukrainian entrepreneurs). Create effective barriers against the dark schemes of REEXPORT and everything will be okay and there will be no need to find fault with entrepreneurs, including Ukrainian ones, in using such opportunities. Article SINGLE-MINUS!

    Yes, for all 200 percent it is always not the one who imports is to blame, but the one who permits this import. And the bureaucrats wanted to spit, especially the fucking customs on Russia, what do you think - they all climb there, try to arrange - only by pull, how many graduates graduate, and only a few get a job if there is a protégé. It is necessary to drive them all, and the first are those that are generals and colonels who care for their pockets, because they came from the 90s, and in their place lieutenants and let these earth dig and know that there are no replaceable ones.
