The OPPOSITION BLOC is leading a team of professionals to parliament who are able to implement real changes in society and improve the welfare of Ukrainians. This was stated by the candidate for people’s deputies, the CEO of “Zaporizhstal” PJSC, Rostyslav Shurma, on the “Freedom of Speech” program on the “ICTV” TV channel.
According to him, while the representatives of the OPPOSITION BLOC worked for the benefit of Ukraine, the participants of the “Opposition Platform” only declared populist promises.
“When seven years ago we came to “Zaporizhstal”, the salary there was less than UAH 5 thousand. Today it is more than UAH 20 thousand. The growth is four times, and it is in difficult economic conditions. We, despite the economic crisis, annually invest more than UAH 2 billion in the enterprise – already more than UAH 10 billion have been invested. Every year we pay UAH 4 billion of taxes – and this despite the fact that half of the economy of Ukraine works in the shadow. We have increased production by 30% for five years – we have broken the best Soviet records, and complete de-industrialization takes place throughout the country. Here are the results of work that speak for us,” the politician noted.
He proposed to compare such results of work with the activities of representatives of the “Opposition Platform – For Life”.
“Who has invested anything there?” Who has increased salaries four times? We hear only empty populist promises from their side – decent pensions, decent salaries. It does not happen. This is possible only after systemic economic changes. We understand the anatomy of economic processes very well. With our experience we have proved that we know how to do it,” the CEO of “Zaporizhstal” PJSC, Rostyslav Shurma, emphasized.
According to Rostyslav Shurma, real changes in society are possible subject to the availability of real experience, rather than only desire. “Unlike our competitors, we have real experience and real knowledge. And without the second, the first will not help,” the politician concluded.
