Oleksandr Vilkul is the person who has the strength, capabilities and professional team to correct the difficult political, economic and social situation in Ukraine, which has been as a result of five years of incompetent and unprofessional governance. This was stated by Oleh Kachur, a trustee of the presidential candidate from the OPPOSITION BLOC Oleksandr Vilkul, during a meeting with employees of the sparkling wine factory in Bakhmut.
He acquainted the participants with the main directions of the program of the opposition presidential candidate and the ways of its implementation. “In particular, one of the main issues in this program is the cessation of hostilities, the establishment of peace and the resolution of controversial issues on the Donbas. This is the first and most important step towards the development of Ukraine,” Oleh Kachur stated.
He also noted that the program of Oleksandr Vilkul pays great attention to the revival of the economy. “It’s hard to describe in normal words what has happened to it for five years. Hundreds of enterprises are closed, thousands of jobs have been reduced, the level of production has decreased tenfold. All this led to the fact that millions of Ukrainians are unable to earn a living for themselves and their families in Ukraine, therefore they are forced to go abroad and do the most unqualified work there. The country is losing specialists, able-bodied people who could invest their strength and knowledge in the development of the national economy,” Oleh Kachur emphasized.
In view of this, one of the main steps of the Vilkul electoral program is the revival of industrial enterprises, which in the recent past formed the basis of the national economy. This will ensure the creation of new jobs, the production of competitive products, higher wages and an improvement in the living standards of every Ukrainian.
According to the politician, the Vilkul program provides for a change in the tax system of both individuals and legal entities. “For example, for the first 2 years the system “15/15/15” will be introduced: 15% - the tax on personal income, 15% - VAT and 15% - the tax on corporate profits. After it is planned to reduce the figures to 12% to motivate and attract foreign investors to boost the national economy,” Oleh Kachur said.
He did not ignore the social sphere. Social issues are especially important because they concern every citizen regardless of age, specialty and political convictions. The statements of the current authorities on the increase of wages and pensions look like a mockery of people. If payments increased by 5-14%, then the cost of goods, services and utilities has increased significantly.
“As the Eastern wisdom says, “No matter how much you say “halva, halva,” they won’t become sweeter in the mouth.” Almost every citizen of Ukraine felt the consequences of the social genocide of the current government. All this will be radically changed after the elections. The country will start taking care of the people again, rather than harass them,” the opposition leader stressed.
Oleh Kachur called on the participants of the meeting on March to be guided primarily by reason in their choice. “The upcoming elections are not only presidential elections, which is important in itself. This is the choice of the future for children, grandchildren, relatives and friends, this is a choice for a country, which we still have to live in,” the oppositionist concluded.
