The situation in the country became much worse after Maidan events, a Ukrainian businessman who recently left the country told the German magazine “Der Tagesspiegel.”
For a short period of time, the situation changed in a positive way and they were “in the seventh heaven,” Vadim said. But then the bandits again came to power, and "the new mafia," working in conjunction with the corrupt police, became even stronger.
"Earlier there were men with Kalashnikovs who came and demanded money. Today, they come with an official letter from corrupt officials with whom they work and ask for more."
Vadim claims that laws adopted by the new Kiev government to combat corruption are just a fiction.
He also said the mafia in Lviv tried to blackmail him after he refused to pay the bribe. The bandits threatened to poison his guard dogs and hang out the flag of the People's Donetsk Republic on his house.
