KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s big business is by no means interested in unrest in the country and will not support any appeals to stage mass strikes across Ukraine, the president of the Ukrainian Analytical Centre, Alexander Okhrimenko, believes.
Political issues and slogans were secondary in the real sector of the economy, he told reporters in comments to a possibility to involve major enterprises in the indefinite protest action in Kiev.
“When enterprises stop, their owners immediately sustain losses,” the expert said. “None of the owners will agree to that. May be small outlets, kiosks or small private companies could close down succumbing to the ‘Maidan’ moods, but as for major enterprises - no way,” he added. (Maidan is Kiev’s Independence Square where protests against the government decision to delay an association deal with the EU continue)
The president of the analytical center said talks about a possibility to organize a more or less mass strike in Ukraine to support protesters in central Kiev were simply part of heated political discussions continuing in the Ukrainian capital, and nothing more.
