Attorney General Yuriy Lutsenko believes that the emergence of corruption in Ukraine has become possible thanks to three sources: state-owned enterprises, extraction of natural resources and customs.
"You can capture corrupt people for an indefinite period of time, but you have to close the source of the main corruption, I see three major sources: the public sector of the economy consists of 3,500 state-owned enterprises, half of which are unprofitable. For the party bosses who have assigned their management there, everyone carries golden eggs, and without privatization we will never end systemic corruption, "he emphasized.
According to Lutsenko, the second source is natural resources.
"Do you know how many open auctions there were during 14-17 years? Total 43. This is for everything: sand, clay, oil and gas, which means that only 43 of the 2213 issued forms were auctioned. roots of the oligarchs, who actually fill their oligarchic groups with free licenses, "assured the head GPU.
The third component of the development of corruption in Ukraine, Lutsenko called the customs.
"Now the customs are proud that they have raised a tax burden for the container from 7 to 8 thousand, only before 14 thousand, that is, smuggling is one of the important sources of budget supplementation and, on the other hand, corruption. With our weight on matters about customs, but again, here, like in the prosecutor's office, there are no angels or demons, the government has many questions, but I, as attorney general, have these three main issues, "he said.
In addition, the Attorney General noted that he has a different view with Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman regarding the fight against human trafficking, particularly with regard to the presence of police officers in customs clearance.
"The customs code law says that customs can only be customs officials – the point, on the road, with two hands" in front, "control, but if someone is inside, the law deprives him of every opportunity to do something. means that it simply symbolizes a new "roof" is unacceptable to me The second position, which we disagree with – I think that smuggling should be responsible for those who receive a salary for her absence. they must be responsible for something that is designed correctly or incorrectly, if everything is responsible for everything SBU. GPU or MIAAre we customs officers on the cholera? "- he said.
