    Ukraine needs an effective and transparent financial investigation service, which in turn would provide an opportunity to change the system of constant pressure by controlling bodies on the real economy and businesses, assures Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

    "I consider it possible to do as a more progressive step - to set up a single agency – Financial Investigation Service of Ukraine, which will be a high-quality service. Here I want to stand by the real economy and businesses", said Volodymyr Groysman during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Friday.

    The Head of Government noted that he got dozens of complaints against regulatory bodies. 80% of these cases can be regarded as pressure on the real economy and businesses, "while we must fight to ensure economic upturn", urged Volodymyr Groysman.

    He noted that a lot of unpopular things had been done, which allowed the Government to terminate stagnation of economy and to resume economic growth in 2016.

    "Our goal is not just in words to create economic and investment climate, but to establish tools under which entrepreneurs will be protected. These inspectors are turning into racketeers. And I think this is a major question to which we must respond before the Ukrainian Parliament", stressed the Prime Minister.

    The Head of the Government called on MPs to gather the next non-plenary week to decide on further action and deadlines: "We should abandon this system of permanent pressure on businesses by any supervisory authority."

    "Our common objective is to make this system completely transparent and efficient. Corrupt officials, those who engage in money laundering, who opens conversion centers, should be imprisoned. While those 99% of the Ukrainian businesses that work honestly we should treat with respect", underscored Volodymyr Groysman.
