President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky welcomes the adoption of the law on de-oligarchization by the Verkhovna Rada. “I welcome the adoption by parliament of my bill on deoligarchization No. 5599! Ukraine is open for big business, but not for oligarchic influence on officials, politicians and the media. Today we took another step towards getting rid of it. Thanks to all the MPs for their support!” the head of state wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
Later Zelensky said in his Telegram channel that “thanks to the anti-oligarchic law, Ukraine gets a historical chance to build civilized and clean relations between big business and the state.” Yes, many politicians do not like this. Yes, they want to live as they used to, working for the oligarchs. Yes, there was a lot of pressure on our MPs, a lot of intrigues and even blackmail. But the law was passed. I am grateful to every MP who supported this law,” he wrote.
According to the head of state, there will no longer be an oligarchic branch of government in Ukraine. “Legislative, executive and judicial – yes. But for the oligarchs there is only one way – to become a pure business,” the president said.
Zelensky thanked the MPs of Ukraine for supporting the bill, calling the voting results “the right signal.”
