He noted speculation on new trends by many politicians. They advocate for digitalization and economic freedoms, but most of them have little idea how this should help in solving the pressing problems of Ukraine. “They must get down. Is this libertarianism? We are all for libertarianism, especially in business. The only question is that we have obligations to 13 million pensioners. And what they call “libertarianism” has expelled 10 million people from the country to work. Therefore, before raising issues of digitalization and libertarianism, it is necessary to understand that taking care of the 13 million old people in the country is the most important thing now. Their problems cannot be solved by new-fangled words,” Borys Kolesnikov stated.
According to him, most of the elderly people now live in the villages, but the power for the last five years has not contributed to raising their standard of living. “What do they have? There really is no water, no networks, no roads, no hospitals. Suprun writes electronic prescriptions. She should come to the village and work as a nurse, following the example of the British aristocracy, which during the war goes into battle in the forefront. For this it is respected. Let our government also be in the forefront,” the opposition Prime Minister emphasized.
Borys Kolesnikov focused on the need for the country to urgently adopt a comprehensive program to assist in the development of the village. “It is necessary to do what all developed countries do. There is the concept of “green basket”. It implies a write-off of interest on loans, reimbursement of the cost of livestock farms and infrastructure, land reclamation, etc. Then the people on the local level will do everything themselves, the politician concluded.
