In the most recent elections to the Verkhovna Rada businessmen acquired space in the electoral lists of the parties Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Petro Poroshenko at the price from 3 to 10 million dollars, said the Founder of the investment Bank Dragon Capital and head of the European business Association in Ukraine Tomas Fiala.
Fiala, although he was born in the Czech city of Brno, But since the 1990s, lives in Kiev, and during the events of "euromaidan" he was among the protesters. As explained Czech businessman, in the last parliamentary elections in the forefront of their parties, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Petro Poroshenko has placed candidates with "good" reputation, But later in the electoral lists was much business.

review banker Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko did It to Fund their campaigns." Yatsenyuk was not his own money, and Poroshenko considers it a priority not to touch the equity, " said Fiala, reports RT referring to Der Spiegel. To the question, is there evidence of such claims, the banker said: "These facts are well-known in Ukraine and in private conversations This is acknowledged by both parties - buyers and party leaders. If the chief Prosecutor's office was, in reality, independent from political influence, then it would be easy to test such accusations ". However, in his vision, corruption is a serious problem for Ukraine." The state apparatus is presumably from 19 thousand Bureaucrats. Instead of having to fight against illegal activities of officials They themselves drawn into it ", - noted he. In conclusion, Fiala I am sure that, despite prevailing in Ukraine corruption, the West should continue to provide assistance to Kiev, because " It's a good investment "." Residents here no longer need convincing of the need for change. They are willing to suffer. Gas prices have risen several times, and on this issue there were no notable protests. In addition, Ukraine will for many years be dependent on Western loans. This is a lever in the hands of abroad, " - said the banker. In June the Minister of ecology of Ukraine Igor Shevchenko already Yatsenyuk accused in bribery and links with the oligarchs." as Minister, I started a fight with the illegal activities of officials and returned to the state of 22 oil and gas fields that have been stolen from people's relatives Yanukovych. But I made It despite the position of the government, which has close ties with all the Ukrainian clans and protects their wishes, " said Shevchenko. Then Yatsenyuk initiated resignation Shevchenko, saying that he " violated the norms of the civil servant, for example, making a trip abroad during working hours ".
