 Regions Deputy: I See Chechetov's Hand in my Dreams

Reinforcement of the power vertical that happened after Yanhukovych was elected has not uprooted corruption but rather encouraged its growth, acknowledges Regions deputy Vasiliy Gorbal.

"The whole system of hiring and staffing consists of surprises. Let's recall all staff decisions of all presidents", said Gorbal in an interview. "After Yanukovych won, many positions in the Cabinet of Ministers were taken by successful businessmen who attract the best managers to their enterprises. But for some reason that did not happen in the state enterprises they headed".

"This is a problem of low quality of the bureacracy's middle link. I took part in meetings where plans regarding the preparation of laws were announced. But when the executives start preparing bills for a certain execution date then problems and mistakes arise. And then they quietly vote and then you see Chechetov's hand in your dream. And eventually the law comes back vetoed by the President", said the deputy.

"The proclamation of reforms after Yanukovych's victory was a success. And their start was to. But in reinforcing the power vertical there must be some equalizers. If something is taken away from the common rules of the business, then it shall be offered something in return, for instance, tax cuts", summed up Gorbal. "The downside is that corruption is still regretfuly the main problem in Ukraine. And the reinforcement of the power vertical that happened after Yanhukovych was elected has not uprooted corruption but rather encouraged its growth".
