Australia to impose 35 percent duties on imports of all goods from Russia from April 25
From April 25, Australia will introduce additional duties of 35% on the import of all goods from the Russian Federation and Belarus into the country, follows from the message of the Australian government.
"April 1, 2022, Australia will issue a formal notice to remove most favored nation (MFN) tariff eligibility and apply additional duties of 35% to all imports from Russia and Belarus. This will take effect from April 25, 2022 and will be in addition to the general duty rates that are currently applied," the government said.
Earlier, the Australian Foreign Ministry announced the imposition of sanctions against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, members of his family, as well as against "Russian propagandists."
Also on March 20, the agency announced that the Australian government would allocate an additional $22 million in emergency humanitarian assistance to the civilian population of Ukraine. The total amount of funds that the Australian government has committed to provide will therefore be 65 million Australian dollars (about 48 million US dollars).
