Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has called on international companies to resume operations in Ukraine and promised maximum support on the part of the government.
The statement was voiced at a government meeting on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“I’d like to appeal to all international companies that have worked in Ukraine. Resume your work now, as most Ukrainian companies have done in safe regions. The government will help you as much as possible. Stopping work in Ukraine is sanctions against our economy. Your return will be a manifestation of true solidarity with the Ukrainian people, who are today fighting for their freedom and fighting for a peaceful future for the whole of Europe,” the head of government stated.
As reported, according to the Ministry of Economy, 601 companies that took part in the relocation program have moved from the areas of active hostilities. Of them, 390 have already resumed work on new sites in the western regions of Ukraine.
