STRASBOURG, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Deputies of the European Parliament (EP) are dissatisfied with the fact that tycoons are appointed as higher-ups in Ukraine, the leader of the social democratic faction in the EP Hannes Swoboda told a news conference in Strasbourg on Tuesday.
This was not the way the government should be formed, Swoboda said on behalf of his colleagues adding there was a need for a government reform to show the people that the government was taking real action to fight corruption.
Swoboda noted the importance of possible aid from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and said Ukraine needed time to develop and should not be immediately forced to abolish energy subsidies in exchange for loans.
Earlier this month Ukraine's Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov appointed new governors in 18 out of the 25 Ukrainian regions, among them, many businessmen. For instance, Ukrainian entrepreneur, President of the Metallurg football club, Serhiy Taruta, was appointed head of Donetsk, while the owner of dozens of industrial facilities in eastern Ukraine, the second richest man in the country Ihor Kolomoyskyi is now governor of the Dnipropetrovsk Region.
