KIEV, September 29. /TASS/. Georgia's ex-president and current Odessa Region Governor Mikheil Saakashvili has accused Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk of carrying out "pseudo-reforms." This time, accusations are based on the situation with customs tariffs, Saakashvili wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
"Yet again, the State Fiscal Service [SFS] is trying to carry out a pseudo-reform instead of establishing fair rules which is only further exacerbating the condition of the business. Ignoring hopes of importers for fair customs clearance prices, the prime minister signs decree #724, according to which all goods now undergo customs clearance not by real price, but rather by the price set in advance by the SFS," Saakashvili wrote.
The Odessa Region governor said that this not only aggravates the situation with corruption, but also "kills business." "Today, customs clearance is paralyzed," he stressed.
This is not the first time when the Ukrainian government faces criticism from Saakashvili. The Odessa governor earlier accused Yatsenyuk and the cabinet of ministers of inflicting damage on the Ukrainian economy worth 100 billion hryvnias (around $4.5 billion) through state enterprises. Yatsenyuk in turn accused Saakashvili of lying.
