President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky ordered to introduce restrictions for Ukrainian oligarchs outside the country. This was announced by the Minister of Justice of Ukraine Denis Malyuska on the air of the Rada TV channel, writes TASS.
According to him, at the last meeting of the National Security and Defense Council, the head of state demanded to work out the process of interaction with foreign partners, “so that the status of an oligarch and restrictions do not remain exclusively within the borders” of Ukraine. “That is, so that our partners also react, they also establish additional control over the assets and activities of such persons abroad,” the head of the department noted.
Malyuska added that the ministry is working on this task. He stressed that the status of an oligarch would automatically interfere with doing business outside of Ukraine, but this must be regulated by regulations.
Earlier in Ukraine, a law on “de-oligarchization” was passed, which prohibits the richest people in the country from funding political parties and owning the media. The law against the influence of oligarchs was introduced to the Rada by Volodymyr Zelensky personally, and the votes for it were mainly cast by members of the ruling Servant of the People party.
