Listening to the report of the Chairman of the State Fiscal Service, Roman Nasirov, it might give the impression that the current Chairman is perhaps the best one in the history of the institution, and the Ukrainian business should know no worries. However, in reality things are quite the other way round. This was stated by MP from the “Samopomich Union” faction, Andriy Zhurzhiy during the Government meeting.
“First of all, what concerns the rent. I shall recall that the head of the State Fiscal Service has not been providing information on the debt of “Ukrnafta” for eight months. This information could resolve the issue in the legal framework. The Prosecutor General’s Office has already initiated a criminal case against Mr. Nasirov for failure to provide this information.
Secondly, what concerns VAT. I shall recall when last year the e-administration system was introduced, for the last three months we had a monthly income of 12 billion hryvnias. A year has passed. Is there any growth? No, there isn’t.
Thirdly, the activities of conversion centres. At present, criminal cases concerning the cessation of activities of criminal gangs that are engaged in conversion centres business are being failed. For example, in Kharkiv the leaders of the State Fiscal Service cover up for these activities. Actually nobody is fighting with conversion centres. Criminal groups, organizers are not held accountable. As a result, the state annually bears ten billion losses,” says Andriy Zhurzhiy.
According to him, corruption with VAT refund, protection of conversion centres, criminal pressure on business through baseless criminal cases – these are only some of the claims against Roman Nasirov, but this is enough to fire him. Andriy Zhurzhiy has already addressed Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman with the corresponding request.
“First of all, we need to rely not on individual persons but on institutions. Please make submission to dismiss Mr. Nasirov from office,” insists the MP.
Summarizing Andriy Zhurzhiy adds, “Ukrainian business and the budget can no longer tolerate such lack of professionalism and corruption.”
