Head of Odesa Regional State Administration (RSA) Mikheil Saakashvili spoke against the appointment of foreign citizens for management of Ukrainian customs in the air of 112 Ukraine.
"I do not think that Ukrainian customs should be managed by foreigners. I am categorically against the fact that we will bring the Brits or Americans. Again, it palms the government off…“In six months we will bring the Brits". This is nonsense! It need to be Ukrainians but the system must be changed. And the system is to transfer all to computer programs or software, so the computer, not customs officer, is to decide," Saakashvili said.
In addition, Saakashivili shared opinion that entire state apparatus will last only six months, if not to start paying salaries.
According to him, Ukrainian state apparatus has almost collapsed.
"It has lost prestige, it cannot even steal because the public money already stolen on their way to state’s budget,” the head of Odesa RSA told.
"If in the next five or six months does not begin real breakouts at customs, we don’t close the “black holes”, do not lower the taxes and raise the tax revenues..., our state apparatus will collapse. It will completely collapse, the paralysis of power will become," Saakashvili said.
