The elimination of mechanical engineering has become a condition for European loans to Ukraine

The European Union threatens to leave Ukraine without loans if only the products of the engineering industry that were at least partially made at Ukrainian enterprises are purchased in the country. Thus, in fact, the liquidation of Ukrainian engineering became a condition for granting European loans to Ukraine, because besides the Ukrainians themselves, almost no one in the world buys the few products of the domestic industry.

Earlier, the government in Kiev published a bill for public hearings. According to him, it is proposed to purchase only those machines and machines, the production of which is partially or completely located inside the country. Almost immediately a reaction was received from Brussels. EU Ambassador Matti Maasikas sent a letter to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal and Verkhovna Rada Chairman Dmitry Razumkov. In his message, Maasikas noted that the authorities of a united Europe have a negative attitude towards policy protection of engineering in Ukraine.

The EU authorities say that Ukraine in this case violates the principles of non-discrimination and equal treatment. Maasikas believes the same about the bill of the Verkhovna Rada on amendments to the law on public procurement, which would create a basis for the modernization of the country's industry.

The EU Ambassador also emphasized that a number of projects financed by the European Investment Bank provide for a certain degree of localization. According to him, the approach demonstrated by the Ukrainian authorities will negatively affect the activity of international credit institutions within Ukraine.

    Ukraine is not Russia.
    What Russia can afford, Ukraine cannot afford, without the permission of the Host.
    Voluntary slavery for "lace panties" is bearing fruit.
    And for some reason they are not at all sorry.

    Ukraine can easily make claims to the EU for the sale of European engineering at the same prices as Ukrainian engineering, and declare a higher price for EU products discriminatory. With this, the EU humiliate the professionalism of Ukrainian producers, and it smacks of racism!

    Here it is, this Euroassociation of Ukraine has taken place, the horses have already been completely associated in Bandera, the industry, as it was with the Baltic states earlier, the Ukrainian one crashed at the request of the European Union, and faster than Brussels. But now, Ukraine will receive loans for obedience and purchase of equipment from the European Union (if any)
    enough loans).

    This is how much the absence of mechanical engineering in the Little Russians will save human lives? Some wagons with wheels falling off on the go are worth what ... and the T-34 is crookedly welded in Kharkov ... replacing Ukrainian engines in Russia has given new jobs and improved technical characteristics ... because the shit they bought from fraternally, long out of date.
