“To me personally has no effect [Rinat] Akhmetov or [Igor] Kolomoisky. I am sure that President (Vladimir Zelensky — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) is his own man and not controlled by SMS with any of the parties”, — said the head of the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers.
According to him, many Ukrainian businessmen would like to believe that they can put pressure on the government, the Parliament and the President. Goncharuk also expressed confidence that the influence of oligarchs soon reduced and in the media.
