Коломойський: А я якщо олігарх, то позитивний олігарх

Businessman Igor Kolomoisky in an interview with Jeanne Nemcova for DW told what its main difference from President Petro Poroshenko, why is he not going to return to Ukraine and who believes the most worthy candidate for the role of future head of state, reports Rus.Media.

On returning to Ukraine

Kolomoisky was last in Ukraine in June 2017. While there are trials associated with “PrivatBank”, the businessman to return home is not going to – there’s a possibility that you will not be able to leave.

– Can you declare the debtor and close the exit from the country. Given that our trials are not only in Ukraine, but also in London, to deal with all these issues it is easier in Europe than, say, being restricted to travel abroad from Ukraine, – said Kolomoisky.

According to the businessman, trials in “PrivatBank” are in his favor, and there’s even a chance that the London court overturned the nationalization.

With respect to what are the judicial processes in Ukraine, and they go, so to speak, with varying degrees of success, but more, in my opinion, in our favor. And if the court decides that the nationalization was wrong, then we are supposed to repay the Bank. And then the whole of the London process will end itself because we can’t yourselves be judged, says the businessman.

According to Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian authorities initiated the process in London with the aim to make his life harder, to limit the use of the assets.

About the plans of Poroshenko to press “1+1”

Kolomoisky explained what its main difference from President Petro Poroshenko.

– We never compete with Poroshenko, but I’m his opponent. The ideological opponent. – It is our different attitude to life. To democracy, freedom of speech, the events in Ukraine, what should be the President. I have about him is a very big disappointment. For example, Poroshenko’s order for a second time to be elected President (he has such a fixed idea), should have complete control over all TV channels, – says the businessman.

According to Kolomoisky, the President Poroshenko wants to obtain control of the TV channel “1+1”.

– Today I can’t say that I Presley power. We are in a kind of trench warfare, but it is within the law. And sufficiently different desires from us. We know what he wants Peter. He projected in this plan. He wants “1+1” to the polls. Here he was bleeding from the nose, you need a “1+1”, – said Kolomoisky.

On who are the oligarchs

According to Kolomoisky, democracy is that media Express different points of view, even if they are owned by the oligarchs.

Democracy is when different media Express different points of view. And today, if you watch Russian television, you can not switch, all the same. And in still different ways. Yes, they belong to wealthy people. But I can’t say that Pinchuk, the oligarch. – Well, he’s a wealthy man, the owner of the media. But if I was the oligarch, the oligarch positive. – Democratic oligarch – Kolomoisky said.

According to the businessman, the fact that the power in the country controlled by the oligarchs, is not something negative. This is an intermediate step on the way to a civilized market.

– I will tell you so. Oligarchy in post-Soviet countries is an intermediate state before the capture, so to speak, the whole economic power of large corporations. This is an intermediate stage on the way to a civilized market. After the oligarchs will come of a public company, – said Kolomoisky.

The best candidate for election

– I sympathize with Vakarchuk. Not discover America if I say that everyone wants to see new faces. But if you take the old, I think that the most worthy to date, is Tymoshenko.
