Ukrainian legislators plan to consider on Thursday, 19 October, a package of bills related to of cinematography (№№ 3238-р, 3239-р, 3240). These bills suggest changes in the tax, customs and budget codes and should be adopted in accordance with the approved in March Law № 1977- VIII "On State Support of Cinematography in Ukraine" and are part of the package.
