Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman urged the representatives of the controlling bodies and law enforcement agencies, who are engaged in the control of entrepreneurial activity, to restore the maximum level of distinction and respect for business persons. This was announced by the Head of Government during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Groysman recalled that on November 16, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine endorsed a Government's bill on prevention pressure on business. A respective resolution was backed by 312 lawmakers.

"Now I would like to call on the law enforcement officers, those who put on badges and those who bear direct responsibilities for controlling the business, it is of critical importance for you to show respect for entrepreneurs. If pressure on business continues, we will bring each of you to responsibility", stated the Prime Minister.

Background

The Parliament adopted a draft law prepared by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on amendments to certain legislative acts on ensuring compliance with the rights of participants in criminal proceedings and other persons by law enforcement agencies during the prejudicial inquiry (No. 7275), which encapsulates instruments for counteracting any unjustified pressure on Ukrainian enterprises, including pressure from the law enforcement agencies.
