The Customs (Additional Duty) (Russia and Belarus) Regulations 2022, which come into operation on 25 March, increase import duty on Russian and Belarusian goods in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

The 2 countries have lost their Most Favoured Nation status and the amount of duty normally applicable will be increased by 35 percentage points on specified products originating from Russia or Belarus into the UK.
