The head of the Ukrainian country And forgot about the requirements of the Maidan, And about his own pre-election promises, writes.
A year and a half ago, the Maidan in Kiev called for the overthrow of the oligarchic regime under the slogan " down with the Gang!" But afterward as the former head of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych left the country, and in the South-East began with weapons of conflict, the majority of the magnates retained the real Power. Among them - the "chocolate king" Petro Poroshenko, who became the head of the country, reminiscent of the magazine.
review author Konrad Schuller, the new Pro-European government was unable to fight at once on 2 fronts, And therefore went on a consensus with billionaires such as Rinat Akhmetov, Dmitry Firtash And Igor Kolomoisky. And "Ukrainian revolution" from anti was anti-imperialist.
"currently, things are changing. In March Poroshenko took Kolomoisky as Director of the Dnepropetrovsk area. Not so long ago the chief of the SBU was dismissed "man Firtash" Valentyn Nalyvaychenko. What happened?", - asks the Creator.
The reason, in his view, is simple: fighting in the South-East subsided, And the increased time And resources to address domestic issues. As Akhmetov, a significant part of its business It has lost in the process of special operations in the Donbass. He owned coal mines And steel mills crushed or under the supervision of the militia.
Himself Poroshenko importantly his campaign promise to reject their own assets And not fulfilled. He never sold the chocolate business, he owns "the Fifth channel" TV And other assets. In the list of rich Ukrainian Poroshenko occupies the eighth position, his fortune of $750 million to suspect That, pushing from the power of the " old " oligarchs, He clears space for new clans, writes the print edition.
for example, these fears are shared by the people's Deputy of the faction "Self-help" of the Verkhovna Rada Victoria Wojnicka, who believes That around Poroshenko, a new group of oligarchs, aimed at capturing the energy market. Key figures - Ukraine's energy Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn, the Head of National Bank Valeria Gontareva, head of the national Commission, carrying out state regulation in energy And utilities, Dmitry Vovk. All these citizens are nevertheless associated with the firm Investment Capital Ukraine (ICU), which, together with Rothschild CIS engaged in the sale of business assets of Petro Poroshenko.
European analysts suggest That the ancient problems that destroyed the regime of Yanukovych, not resolved in Ukraine. The main source of profit for the oligarchs - the illegal privatization. The power selling state enterprises so hastily That foreign investors do not even have time to study the proposal, And win only " dedicated ". So in the past year was being privatized in Chernivtsi And Transcarpathian regions, and similarly, in the Vinnytsia region, Ukraine traditionally considered the zone of influence of Petro Poroshenko, writes Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
