Mykolayiv, and now Kherson shipmen, supported the program of the MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Oleksandr Vilkul on the withdrawal of the shipbuilding industry from the crisis. At a meeting with labor collectives, the oppositionist discussed concrete steps for the development of enterprises and the creation of jobs that will be realized after the victory in the elections.
“There are two views on the future of Ukraine. Foreign bankers from Ukraine need grain, raw materials and gastarbeiter, which are sent abroad, so that they increase the GDP of any country, but not Ukraine. This is the task of the current puppet leadership of the country.
And my goal and goal of my adherents from the OPPOSITION BLOC is strong and rich Ukraine, peace, support of high-tech branches, decent work and salary for Ukrainians in the homeland. And for this there is a program for the withdrawal of the economy from the crisis,” Oleksandr Vilkul stressed.
“We want to work in our native Kherson. But war and lawlessness are destroying our future. Shipbuilders have major orders from abroad. And foreign customers do not want to deal with our country, which also introduces an incomprehensible military position. Therefore, we invited Oleksandr Vilkul to Kherson. We want protection from lawlessness of the authorities. We believe in it. He fights with the current regime and will not negotiate with it. And he speaks with us in one language about the development of enterprises – he has worked in the industry for many years,” the worker of the Kherson shipyard Serhiy Kovynya said.
Oleksandr Vilkul discussed with the representatives of labor collectives concrete steps to eliminate the crisis in mechanical engineering, shipbuilding and other high-tech industries.
“Before meeting with the shipbuilders of Kherson, I held consultations with representatives of the successful Croatian shipyards. The basis of the fact that they have orders for the construction and repair of ships – the state guarantees that the government gives to customers.
I, as an industrialist, defend this approach. The state is not a personal enrichment tool. It should create opportunities for the development of the economy, so that people live normally,” the parliamentarian said.
Oleksandr Vulkul called the creation of a system of preferential crediting as it works in other countries as an important element of industry support: “Compare: in Ukraine, shipyards can at best receive loans for the development of production at 12% per annum, and in Turkey – maximum 3-5%, and if it is an export order, then the government provides preferential loans and the company pays only 0.25% per annum.”
He also emphasized that the Export Agency should start operating in Ukraine, which will support the withdrawal of domestic products to international markets.
“In Europe, there are only three countries where there is no Export Agency – Albania, Moldova and Ukraine. For the fifth year, we require it to start working, but it is deliberately slowed down. 4 months left before the elections. After our victory, the Agency will earn and the industry will receive real help,” Oleksandr Vilkul summed up.
