 "I will not allow further politicization of companies, state-owned companies to feed politicians and political parties," said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a special meeting of the Government on Friday, March 18, which was focused on the report on results of  check of financial and economic indicators of the key state-owned companies.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has stressed that now Ukraine is facing "a terrible struggle for the state-owned companies": "There is a war for the flows in order to "privatize" a particular company or appoint its manager for this company. Everyone who stands with slogans against corruption, then comes through the back door and asks to appoint this or that person. "

The Prime Minister has pointed out that there is "strong resistance to the competitions for the appointment of heads of state-owned companies only with a view to further control the flows."

"There is a war against those leaders who are fighting for transparency," underlined Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The main issue, he stressed, is not just to check the activities of companies or change their CEOs: "One has been changed, came another and keeps on doing the same things."

"It is necessary, first, to change the system, and secondly - to bring criminal charges and to prosecute (for abuse. - Ed), otherwise it will never end. Names will change, names of companies will change, political parties, leaders, prime ministers, presidents as well - but the system will  stay the same," said the Prime Minister.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has instructed the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Economy to the results of today's meeting of the Government to develop a new control and responsibility system for state-owned companies: "It is essential for us to have a completely transparent system of control for the state-owned companies ."
