 No matter where investments come from, except for aggressor state, - PM Hroisman on power companies privatization

For privatization of Ukraine’s regional energy companies, the source of investment does not matter, as long as it is not owned by Russia.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman in an interview to Interfax-Ukraine.

"It does not matter where the investments come from. The most important thing is that the privatization process must be public and comprehensible," Hroisman said.

According to the head of the government, it is necessary to change the tradition when the privatization conditions immediately determine the winner.

"Our task is to submit as transparent conditions as possible and let the market decide who will be the owner. The owner makes no difference for us unless it is from the aggressor country. The only thing that matters is the investor's decency, efficiency and willingness to invest in modernization," the PM stressed.

Hroisman noted that the former Soviet countries neighboring Ukraine carried out privatization back in the 90s, and they have neither oligarchs nor corruption problems while their economies are developing in a different way thanks to investments pumped into former state-owned enterprises.
