UPD: 13/12/2013 Akhmetov supports EuroMeidan and urged the parties to the conflict to sit down at the negotiating table

Ахметов поддержал Евромайдан и призвал стороны конфликта сесть за стол переговоров

Ukrainian businessman Rinat Akhmetov on Friday, November 13 made a statement on the situation in the country.

"SCM in the first days of aggravation of the situation in Kiev gave its position, and I, as a shareholder of SCM, completely share it.

These days many people want to know my personal attitude to what is happening. My position is this: Ukraine and the President traveled on the European road for three and a half years. And during this time, a lot has been done. In Vilnius, the agreement was not signed. And everyone had a question - what happened? Ukraine took a break? Has Ukraine stopped? Or did Ukraine go the other way? Everyone wants to have clarity. People began to search for answers to these questions and went to the Maidan.

The fact that peaceful people came out on peaceful rallies says that Ukraine is a free democratic country. And from this road Ukraine will not turn. And it's very cool. But the fact that people have suffered these days is unacceptable. I am convinced that now, at a difficult time for our country, it is very important to have cold heads and a balanced approach. In short, common sense must prevail. I am for a strong, independent and integral Ukraine. We are one country, and it is not necessary to divide it. I am at the negotiating table. So that politicians, authorities, opposition, moral leaders of the country sit down at the negotiating table and make the decision that we will be proud of. I repeat, be proud, not ashamed. That decision, from which Ukraine and every Ukrainian will win both in the short, medium and long term. This table I would call the table of peace, compromise and the future of our country. And let politicians lose their ratings at this table. But the most important thing is that the rating of Ukraine goes up "

Earlier, on Dec. 2, in an official press release of the SCM group, which includes hundreds of city-forming enterprises that provide jobs to 300,000 employees, made an official position on the situation in the country.

The official statement of the company says that the SCM group is built on basic European values, where the rule of law, respect for private property rights, freedom of speech, personal freedom, and freedom of peaceful assembly are priorities.
