Nationalists announce blocking of Russian companies in Ukraine for Sept
KYIV. July 25 (Interfax-Ukraine) - A number of nationalist organizations have announced their intention to begin actions to block the activities of Russian companies in Ukraine since the fall of this year.
At a press conference in the press center of the Interfax-Ukraine agency on Tuesday, non-factional Rada member Andriy Illenko said that the National Corps, Svoboda and Right Sector unite their efforts for the sake of such actions.
"We will begin implementing the bulk of this action in September. And we are calling on all Ukrainians to finish this disgrace together. If the authorities do not want to do this, civil society should take everything in their hands," he said.
"The war in underway for the fourth year, our heroes are dying every day on the front, and we see further violence of corrupt Russian business in Ukraine. Our government contributes to it and makes a profit of it. We are still not protected economically in the face of Russian aggression. This is not a normal situation," he said.
Illenko also said that the campaign would be directed against Russian business, "we are not going to make Ukrainians hostages of the circumstance."
"People should be ready for our actions. They will be absolutely peaceful," he said.
The deputy recalled the actions of the National Corps on blocking the work of the central office of Sberbank. "Such actions are very often the only way out of the situation. Perhaps, because of this action the expansion of Russian capital into the Ukrainian banking sector has stopped today," he said.
Ukraine's parliamentarian Oleh Petrenko said that today there is no clear list of companies activity of which the activists are planning to block.
Speaker of the political party National Corps Oleksandr Alfiorov informed that the Black List page on Facebook is the platform for discussing blocking issues.
"We are starting with discussion sites: There will be new technologies in September. Data on the activities of such companies will be collected and professionally systematized," he said.
