Ukraine should review the list of state properties exempt from privatization
Ukraine should review the list of state properties exempt from privatization, proposes Vladislav Rashkovan, Ukraine’s Alternate Executive Director at the IMF. Speaking at ICU’s Forum in Odesa, he asked: “Who said that a railway can not be privatized? Who said that the customs should be state? Who said that hospitals, kindergartens, schools, universities should be state-owned?” In January, the law “On the Privatization of State and Communal Property” listed areas that are not to be privatized – largely defense, hospitals, mineral deposits, forests, and nuclear power plants.
