According to him, any attempts to put pressure on Abromavicius or commit illegal actions against him will be stopped.
"This minister is under protection of my faction and the government," Yatseniuk said.
Prior to this, he also noted that despite great difficulties with the appointment of heads of state enterprises, this process was finally made transparent and open thanks to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. The same, according to Yatseniuk, applies to tenders.
