“I am proud that in the first place a production worker and worked on the job specialties. We have already proved that we are able to deduce the enterprise from crisis, to create new high-paying jobs. We’ll do it again. Quickly restore peace. Will have a real decentralization, to environmental taxes paid by enterprises in the industrial cities, did not go to Kiev in the bottomless pockets of the government, and remained in the regions. Went to the economic allowances to pensions and salaries. We will restore respect for working people”, – said Vilkul.

So – there will be good roads, new kindergartens, environmental surcharges to residents of industrial cities, comfort and safety. Because even in such industries where high wages, people are now confident in the future of their children, do not understand what will happen to the country”.
