The French Ambassador said that foreign companies in Ukraine faced corruption and raiding

Corruption undermines the trust of foreign investors in Ukraine. The Ambassador of France in Kiev Isabelle Dumont said in an interview with TV channel «1+1» which aired on March 29.

«There are instances when our company is faced with the manifestations of bribery. They are very concerned about this, talk to the Embassy, and business Ombudsman. This is a problem we have to face daily, in conjunction, incidentally, with the representatives of Ukrainian authorities», – said the diplomat.

Dumont added that there were cases when French companies were victims of raider attacks.

«The Ukrainian authorities, these facts are known, they are not even denying their existence. And when there is a RAID against a company, and the judge takes the side of these raiders, you understand the implications of trust on the part of foreign investors to Ukraine?» the Ambassador stressed.

While Dumont has assured that the Ukrainian government «there are people who understand that without trust, there will be those investments that are so needed by everyone».

Before that the Belgian businessman Bernard Wiehl said that he wants to sell his farm producing goat cheese in the Lviv region because of the high level of corruption in Ukraine.

In December 2017, the Minister of justice Pavel Petrenko said on the reduction of the number of hostile takeovers in Ukraine.
