Privatisation 2016: A New Phase

Taras Boroda, COSA Junior Associate

A new round of privatisation is coming to Ukraine, with the Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groisman insisting it should start as soon as possible. Within this context, Ukraine is facing the following all-important question: will the major privatisation of 2016 increase the state government efficiency or become yet another example of power abuse and corruption, as it happened before?

In order to understand the current situation, we have to go back a few years and recall the lamentable experience of privatisation that illustrated the total corruption prevalent in Ukraine.

В Украине грядет новая волна приватизации, а Премьер-Министр Украины Владимир Гройсман  рекомендует ее не затягивать. В данном контексте важным для Украины является следующий  вопрос: станет ли для Украины большая приватизация 2016 дорогой к увеличению эффективности управления государством или окажется очередным следом злоупотреблений властью и коррупции, как это бывало ранее?

The results of the referendum held in Great Britain on 23 June 2016 were disappointing for the Euro-optimists and encouraging for the Eurosceptics. Both London and Brussels virtually panicked when the first voting returns came in. It appeared as though neither Britain nor the EU were fully prepared for such an eventuality, despite the fact that anti-integration sentiments in many European countries were there for everyone to see.

Результаты референдума, проведенного в Великобритании 23 июня текущего года, стали удручающими для еврооптимистов и оптимистическими для евроскептиков. После объявления первых итогов голосования и в Лондоне, и в Брюсселе воцарилось фактически паническое настроение. Складывалось впечатление, что ни Британия, ни Евросоюз не были полностью готовы к такому повороту событий. Хотя роста антиинтеграционных настроений в странах Европы не мог не заметить только слепой.

Although the European Union is the most advanced integration project in the world today, recent events have cast doubt on its further successful realization, at least in the shape it was initially conceived.

The annexation of Crimea two years ago unleashed an unexpected confluence of new geopolitical events. Looking back at history, however, many of these events might have been anticipated in advance.

The second anniversary of Maidan has forced Ukrainian society to re-think what was accomplished, and what has yet to be achieved on the nation’s winding path to freedom and democracy.

Ukraine’s recent elections indicate that external players, including the Kremlin, will find it more challenging to influence the nation’s domestic politics.
