After escape of Former President Victor Yanukovich and his close friends to Russia, Akhmetov obtained his sphere of influence, Igor Kolomoysky said during interview to the journalist Sonya Koshkina at YouTube channel, HB reports.
“Rinat Akhmetov controls 30% of GDP. Correct? Under Yanukovich, he controlled 15% or 20%. On the other hand, GDP became twice less, 2.5 times”, Kolomoysky said.
GDP considers that the state created such conditions under which Akhmetov could obtain such influence: “The state creates conditions, under which one man, without a surname, can control 30% of GDP”.
“I do not disapprove that Akhmetov makes money on Rotterdam+, and if there is Rotterdam3+, he will also make money on it. He plays those games, which the authorities prescribed”, he added.
