According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this to a briefing today.

“The current chief of the Anti-Monopoly Committee of Ukraine, Oleksiy Kostusev, defends monopolies, which were created by the team of the ex-Prime Minister of Ukraine, Party of Regions leader Victor Yanukovych and ex-President Leonid Kuchma”, Yulia Tymoshenko said, asked how the Fuel-Energy Ministry of Ukraine plans to fill the Ukrainian market with oil on instruction of AMCU.

She stressed that the new AMCU chief has not been appointed as yet because the work of parliamend had been blocked for a long time, and the Committee is still headed by Party of Regions representative O.Kostusev.

“The Anti-Monopoly Committee chief is a representative of the Party of Regions, without any doubt, he protects the monopolies, which were created by the Victor Yanukovych’s team and his govenrnment, and also by his predecessor, former President L.Kuchma”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.

According to her, as of today, practically, the whole country is enveloped with monopolies, beginning from iron-ore raw supplies, to foodstuffs production.

The Prime Minister pointed out that these monopolies were created by the previous power. “These monopolies will create anything you want, but it will not be a real market”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.
