Free fall of the Ukrainian industry

31
Free fall of the Ukrainian industryWith the game unfolding, Kiev’s invisible muscles in the south-east of Ukraine should not lose sight of the changes in the Ukrainian industrial segment. Every year, the metallurgical, chemical and food industries brought treasury Square huge profits and, in fact, determined the future direction of economic development. “Brought” and “defined” - these verbs are not for nothing used in the past tense, as today's political confusion and increasing economic confrontation with Russia leads to obvious negative consequences for the Ukrainian industrial segment - to its decline.


From the moment of the coup d'état on the territory of Ukraine, the industry, which even before this could not be called developing as a cosmic pace, began to experience enormous problems. And these problems are based not only on economic turmoil.

In particular, over the past month, Zaporizhstal alone has been attacked by militants from the Right Sector twice. For the first time, the seizure of property of one of the largest industrial enterprises of Ukraine took place on 20's last month. A new attack with attempts to seize the dumps of Zaporizhstal took place the other day. The information that the property of the enterprise, which employs more than 19,5 thousands of people, was attempted to re-take possession of the armed people from the Right Sector, was announced by the chief prosecutor of Zaporizhzhya, Alexander Shatsky. He stated that armed people had been delivered to the Zaporizhstal dumps by buses, who tried to take part of the dumps under their own control. Pravoseki decided to again seize the ownership of the enterprise after clashes between supporters and opponents of Maidan occurred on the Walk of Fame of Zaporozhye. Apparently, it was necessary to throw out the energy and "ask" for funds to continue the "triumphal victories of the revolution." At the same time, representatives of the Zaporizhia branch of the “Right Sector” stated that they had taken part of Zaporizhstal’s property under their control in order to protect them from being plundered ... In addition, Zaporizhzhya pravoseki said that in this way they tried to prevent the work of not Zaporizhstal itself, but several firms that allegedly continue to make profits in the Zaporizhia region for the “family” of Yanukovich.

Our organization really stopped the work of firms working for the family of Yanukovich, quotes the representatives of the "PS" edition "Navigator".

As a result, as reported, Alexander Shatsky, the Zaporizhzhya authorities contacted Dmitry Yarosh, after which the PS representatives left the Zaporizhstal dumps. What words to the presidential candidate the Cossacks operated on - not reported ...

For reference: the dumps of Zaporizhstal were once used to “store” wastes with a high percentage of metals. Some of them are actively used today. Ukrainian media report that it is often for these territories that real wars are unfolding between the various factions that are trying to “stake out” the right to recycle and then sell the metal found in Zaporozhstal dumps. That is why the statements that the “Right Sector” was going to protect the dumps from someone are more like an attempt to justify the actual redistribution of property.

For obvious reasons, the raids of armed individuals on industrial facilities today do not add to the economic prosperity. A whole series of small industrial enterprises today are forced to face frank exactions from those who consider themselves to be "defenders of the revolution." Representatives of the same “Right Sector”, as stated in the famous film, simply make an offer that cannot be refused - with weapons in the hands of enter the territory of companies and offer the leadership of the "hire" "self-defense Maidan" for protection. Guard from whom? Very simply - from the very "Right Sector", from the very "self-defense". If the management of the enterprises refuses, it is unlikely that this company will be able to conduct its business in the former calm mode. Therefore, today, at many industrial and commercial sites of Ukraine, one can see a characteristic sign “object under protection” with the signature “Self-defense of Maidan”.

But not only the encroachments of violators of the law today hinder the active development of Ukrainian enterprises. Another reason that many industrial facilities either freeze their production process or close at all is the economic instability of Ukraine itself. More than ever, a silhouette of default looms over the Ukrainian economic system. The insolvency of the economy today is obvious, and this in the absence of financial injections will lead to a default rating. If for the US dollar today they give about 13 hryvnia, then after confirming the default, the hryvnia may collapse, at least, to 25 units per dollar. It is this value of the hryvnia that economic experts mention today - in the event that the situation in Ukraine does not stabilize in the near future (and the prerequisites for stabilization are not yet visible).

The economic crisis and political intrigues in Ukraine led to the fact that several companies, owned and co-owned by Dmitry Firtash, would be stopped by the beginning of May. We are talking about enterprises for the production of chemical products (fertilizers). According to the Ukrainian media, Dmitry Firtash decided to “temporarily” stop such enterprises as Stirol, Severodonetsk and Cherkassy Azot, and Rivneazot. Officially, the stop is connected with the repair of enterprises, but unofficially - precisely with the economic and political events in Ukraine, plus the uncertainty of the future fate of Dmitry Firtash himself.

It is worth recalling that Firtash 12 in March of this year was arrested in Austria at the request of the FBI. It turned out that since 2006, he was accused of corruption crimes (bribes to Indian officials to obtain permission to develop titanium in one of the states of India) and to create a criminal group. After 10 days after the detention, the Ukrainian businessman was released on 125 with millions of euros. If you believe the data Forbes, it is almost 20% of the current state of Dmitry Firtash. The United States declares that they have all the evidence against the Ukrainian businessman, and they demand that the businessman be extradited to his territory. What is the connection between Indian titanium, Firtash bribes and the United States? In the United States, they say that Firtash used American financial platforms for remittances, and conducted negotiations with Indian officials in American cellular networks. It turned out that this is more than enough for the United States to demand extradition ... Guided by this logic, it turns out that if the Kiev pickpocket Vasya had phoned a colleague Raj from Mumbai using, for example, the Russian Yotafon "Simka", then Russia should demand Vasina extradition, perhaps? .. Could the US come up with a more plausible excuse to get a Ukrainian oligarch and his "savings".

Why does the USA Firtash? And then, that the United States is trying to get to its assets, recalling that the businessman at one time was closely associated with Viktor Yanukovych. And in order not to talk about this explicitly, the United States is composing tales about his interest in the fight against “international corruption”, adding to this the “use of American cellular operators.” But for the factories of Firtash and the economy of Ukraine as a whole, and this is no longer important.

The decline in production in Ukraine in the first quarter of 2014 of the year (according to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine) in relation to the indicators of the same period last year averaged 9%. In some industries, the decline looks terrifying. For example, the production of vehicles, trailers, semi-trailers fell by more than 24%.

Production of optical and high-precision products - and at all on 58%! The fall in the volume of metallurgical production was 10,1%. The only industry where a significant increase was recorded compared to the first quarter of 2013 was the electrical equipment industry, with Ukraine itself as the main sales market, and Russia and Belarus (this is about the overwhelming desire of Maidan to go to Europe with its goods) ...

    The United States was well aware of the state of the Ukrainian economy. At the same time, they encouraged the destructive elements with good money. But when it came time to help their junta, they immediately began to blame Russia. Maybe everything that happened is done against us (economically)?

Yes, and Sold, he took up the old things again, again intends to buy Amer uranium rods, and they seem to be more expensive than Russian ones, and it is not known how they will work.

    Unfortunately, in Russia, too, not everything is so good with the industry. So is it worth looking at Ukraine if at home ... Only in our city and region, the largest children's literature factory in Russia was closed in the first half of the year. The car plant is cutting production and has already laid off 717 people out of 2500 planned for reduction. One of the regional cities of the region has closed a city-forming glass plant. The workers have nothing to eat, since there is no other job in the city. This is not a panic, these are real facts. During this time, no other production facilities were opened. Unless a new hypermarket was built. What kind of Ukraine is there ... we could survive on our own. there is no targeted policy in the development of production and agriculture in Russia, and it seems that nobody in the government cares. Golodets already predicts a shortfall of 1 trillion. rubles. to the budget. My acquaintance in the Ministry of Internal Affairs said that they were taking 1 rubles from their salaries to support the Ukrainian Berkut.

      It’s good to sit on the clave and clatter everything for the better, what’s the matter, there’s no plan to build a new plan, the government never showed interest, they are liberals, they say the market will do everything, Au has been doing it for 10 years now, tariffs have been rising and starting to grow with the permission of the government and off it went, And after wondering why you need to recalculate, The truth is bitter, The cost of production rises and profits are higher but released less, When does this dance end, What is the use of raising pensions if tariffs are clearly rising and everything is back to square one, Look at China or Japan why the governments of these countries are monitoring about 2000 parameters in their economy, and try to raise the price a little will not seem, But we have a market but some kind of flawed almost no market,

    I agree with renimom at 100! Let’s look at ourselves! And as in the saying in our own eyes we don’t notice the log, everything in the country is falling apart and ruining, the results of our internal governance are very bright in Primorye. The press broadcasts about investments, and in fact, there is a total closure of production facilities all over the region, and coal terminals with antediluvian means of loading coal are opening on the site of fish processing, ship repair and shipbuilding factories, and that’s all! The last production and engineers leave for China, Vietnam, Thailand, Canada. Only empty crackling Ukraine! Our life is not a holiday, it’s a feeling that everyone has simply gone astray from applications for central heating. We need to put things in order in our country, like in South Korea, and then the whole world should be taught how to live.

    Well, it’s understandable. If Ukraine continues to rest on the horn, then its industry will land on an unequipped airfield on its belly. Now the question is: “Where to put so many hungry mouths then? And who will begin to shape their minds? Kiev has succeeded in completely fooling its population. The tactical course of all this Maidan shobla justifies itself. We’ll act like a kamikaze accordingly. Suffer it will hurt and then it will be pleasant. But the Jesuit plan for the collapse of the economy is carried out in full. Future hordes of poor people are being prepared who will be indicated the culprit of their troubles and this culprit will be in the east. I hope that it's just that I'm such a grumbler and pessimist.

    Well, what have you dragged along about payments by order? Even so, where is the connection between the decline in production and the "order"? Or maybe this is not an "order", but simply an expression of solidarity, a sense of mutual assistance, but it’s just humanly to help wounded colleagues. YES THAT WAS ALWAYS AND EVERYWHERE!

    Along the way, my friend, you are calling for something, hiding behind "the curtailment of production and the salaries of entire industrialists." Come on, announce where YOU have someone 'turned off', to what extent. I am sure you will find opponents. If you are dissatisfied with something, then the train has left - you should have run and fuss before them at the local, regional presidential and other elections before them, tell and explain to everyone and everything how to live correctly, for whom to vote. No need to raise a muddy wave. Otherwise, a 'citizen' will come (as some here on the website casually call the civil war) and accidentally rip off your head, me, any reader of these lines. Close and dear ones. Just. And it will be sad.

    What country do you live in? Maybe it’s blowing, so do you reason like that?
