KIEV, October 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Hundreds of businessmen from all around Ukraine on Thursday staged an “empty purse march” in downtown Kiev demanding to annul the new Tax Code.
In front of the government building the protesters banged spoons against empty bowls and pots and threw empty purses to the building’s entryway.
“We have staged this march to demand the cancellation of the Tax Code, which told negatively on businessmen having reduced their profit and increased losses. Many were forced to close their production lines and trade outlets,” Vyacheslav Roi, the chairman of the Ukrainian Federation of Small and Medium Business Trade Unions, told Itar-Tass. According to Roi, participants in the action have handed over to the government a written appeal with their demands.
The new Tax Code was adopted at the end of last year and came under severe criticism from businessmen. Mass protest actions were crowned by certain amendments to the document.
