It's time for Ukraine to sell state-owned enterprises – IMF

Ukraine needs to start selling state-owned enterprises. This was stated by the head of the IMF mission in Ukraine Ron Van Rooden at a meeting with Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andrey Parubiy.

The IMF believes that the sale of state enterprises will strengthen the economy of Ukraine and improve the situation with corruption.

"Right now it's time to start selling state-owned enterprises, which will improve the situation in the economy and improve the situation with corruption. The creation of the Anti-Corruption Court is considered a crucial addition to the previously created NABU (National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine), SAP (Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office) and NAZK (National Agency for Corruption Prevention)," Rooden emphasized.

We recall, according to the approved plan of privatization, in 2018, SPF (State Property Fund) plans to sell Khmelnitskoblenergo (70%), Nikolayevoblenergo (70%), Kharkivoblenergo (65%), Zaporozhyeoblenergo (60%), Ternopoloblenergo (50.9%), Cherkassyoblenergo (46%), Sumyoblenergo (25%), Donbassenergo (25%), Odessaoblenergo (25%).
