"Several facts for you to understand: Dutch CTP company (one of the biggest industrial developers in Europe) has won international tender to manage a future industrial park in Riasne-2 industrial area. After the winning, the Dutch offer not only to invest in the future part but also to buy a land plot under it (although they didn't have to). They agreed to pay 52 million hryvnia for it, bring large manufacturers, and create more than 3,000 new jobs.

"In any country (especially in those who cannot boast investment flow and high employment rate) such a story would have stirred optimism. Such projects and such investments attract others. They are followed and studied. What does the Ukrainian state do? Right, it initiates a criminal proceeding and sends masked showmen to all involved agencies; they search for crime where it should not be and where there's none.

"The story has lasted for about a year now, and I am surprised with investors' patience who are still here, who haven't left. I will fight for that project. I do not have as much powers and the state machine, but I follow President Poroshenko's message he voiced during many economic forums: "Ukraine is open for investment!"

"I will tell you more after the questioning," Sadovyi wrote.
