  • 16:28 The President proposes to assemble another round table, where to give the floor to representatives of the sectors most vulnerable to the EU - agriculture and mechanical engineering.
  • 16:26 Yanukovych: in the form in which the agreement on the Association was prepared, it cannot be signed. There are more minuses than pluses.
  • 16:25 "Restoring order in the economy without restoring normal relations with Russia. If we lose even more trade, the situation will become very serious," the president says.
  • 16:23 Yanukovych: “What interests me most is how we end the year from an economic and social point of view. I know how low-income people, pensioners live now. They don’t go to the Maidan, they wait for us to decide their fate.”

UPD: 12/13/2013 Akhmetov supported Euromaidan and urged parties to the conflict to sit 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 Company in the early days of the aggravation of the situation in Kiev gave its position. And I, as a shareholder of SCM, completely share it.

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

The fact that peaceful people took part in peaceful actions suggests that Ukraine is a free democratic country. And Ukraine will not turn off this road. And it’s very cool. But the fact that these days people have suffered is unacceptable. I am convinced that now, at a difficult moment 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. For politicians, authorities, the opposition, moral leaders of the country to sit at the negotiating table and make the decision that we will be proud of. I repeat, be proud, not ashamed. The decision that Ukraine and every Ukrainian will benefit from both in the short, medium and long term. I would call this table the table of peace, compromise and the future of our country. And let politicians lose their ratings at this table. But most importantly, Ukraine’s rating should go up. "

Earlier, on December 2, in an official press release of SCM Group, which included hundreds of city-forming enterprises that provide jobs for 300 thousand employees, she made an official position on the situation in the country.

The company’s official statement states that SCM Group is built on basic European values, where the rule of law, respect for private property rights, freedom of speech, personal freedom, freedom of peaceful assembly are priority.

"We are categorically against any violence and believe that today it is necessary to make every effort to find mutually acceptable solutions that will benefit the whole country and every Ukrainian," the SCM statement said.
