“What are the priorities? Number one: we are building a country without oligarchs ... I think you are already feeling our first steps, which I have been preparing for a long time, and now you see the result. A country for 40 million, not for a hundred of Forbes. The state should help business, instead of big business living at the expense of the state budget,” Zelensky told.
He added that Ukraine would not rely only on the sanctions policy of other states, but will pursue “a strong sanctions policy against propagandists, smugglers, criminal authorities, thieves in law.”
Also, according to the president, the bill on the status of oligarchs is almost ready.
As previously reported, there are 13 oligarchs in Ukraine who have a very large influence on the economy, domestic and foreign policy.
According to Zelensky, judicial reform will also be built from scratch.
Earlier, it was reported that a draft law on oligarchs would soon be submitted to Verkhovna Rada.
