Poroshenko: deoligarchisation program to be realized regardless name of oligarch

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that among tasks of the newly appointed head of Odesa Regional Administration Mikheil Saakashvili is deoligarchisation.

"I hope that we would have absolutely new approaches in settling new tasks. On one hand, we should finance the army, defense and protect our territorial integrity and sovereignty, and everyone is to be equal under the law. No oligarchs will be in Ukraine anymore. Oligarchs are to pay more than the medium class, small business which fulfills its tasks by creating new jobs," the president said, introducing the new head of Odesa Regional Administration Saakashvili in Odesa on Saturday.

Poroshenko said that the deoligarchisation program will be "implemented, regardless the name of an oligarch."

"We will not have private armies that marching in cities and towns. They will be disarmed and punished. The guard company will be deprived of licenses and organizers will be imprisoned," he said.
