The authorities of the "DPR" do not "nationalize" the metallurgical enterprises of the Ukrainian businessman Rinat Akhmetov, since they will not be able to provide the full functioning and organize the production distribution. This opinion was expressed by the creator of Vostok terrorist battalion Alexander Khodakovsky at his Internet Conference.
"We have not solved the problem with the nationalization, for example (of metallurgical enterprises – OstroV), of Rinat Akhmetov. Because if we take away the assets, where will we deliver these products? If we will able to produce it. Because it is necessary to define immediately, where we will take the ore, coke… Akhmetov delivered that from his own businesses, where will we take that? And who will buy the finished product, if Russian market is oversaturated with offers of Russian metallurgical companies", - the militant stated.
Alexander Khodakovsky is a former employee of the Security Service of Ukraine, who had betrayed the oath and became one of the leaders of the Donbass terrorists from the first days of the Russian hybrid war against Ukraine. He created and headed the Vostok battalion. He is currently moved away from all the official positions in the "DPR". He is in the confrontation with the so-called "head of the republic" Alexander Zakharchenko. He is an ideologist of the accession of the Donbass to Russia, but his approaches to this question do not find understanding in the Russian Federation.
