Vladislav Berdichevsky: Criminal punishment for importing of Russian Federation’s goods will affect Ukrainian oligarchs
The Kiev officials and oligarchs, who are close to power, will find themselves amidst victims in case of the establishment of criminal liability in Ukraine for the import of goods made in the Russian Federation. The DPR People’s Council deputy Vladislav Berdichevsky shared his opinion with the Donetsk News Agency.
ʺThe issue, which was inflated by the Ukrainian authorities concerning the Russian export, cannot be addressed by some trivial bans as suggested by the Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov. The thing is that they will have to punish the oligarchs, who are close to power, and their own corrupt officials,ʺ a deputy said.
According to him, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, who owns the assets of confectionery factory “Roshen”, which has its office in Lipetsk in Russia, should be at the top of the list of “sponsors” of Russia and “enemies” of Ukraine. The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine also bought 65 buses in Pavlovsk back then, fertilizers are regularly purchased in the Russian Federation.
ʺIt would be better if someone “sold” the Ukrainian statesmen sense,ʺ Vladislav Berdichevsky said.
It should be noted that the Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov have proposed to establish criminal liability for importing goods from Russia today. He voiced this proposal to journalists, commenting on the decision of “Ukrainian Railways” to purchase award pins “Honoured Railwayman” in the Russian Federation.
