37 Group Companies Fall Prey to Artem Sytnyk’s Private War against Agribusiness, a Statement by Ukrlandfarming PLC

News list
It is for the past eighteen months that NABU has been mounting unprecedented improper pressure on this company. The pressure that has nothing to do with justice. Instead of fighting top-level government corruption, NABU Director Artem Sytnyk is forcing his employees to fight a major Ukrainian producer. A consequence of this war is a complete shutdown of 37companies of the group Ukrlandfarming, which has put 13,000 Ukrainians out of a job and resulted in 1.5 billion hryvnias less taxes paid in the last year alone. Modern farms are being closed down including unique breeding facilities. The fallout from this can be catastrophic for the whole sector.  Egg farms are being shut down as we speak with output dramatically cut down causing egg prices in Ukraine to skyrocket. 

This begs the question to NABU: how is terrorising a Ukrainian agricultural producer in the national interest? Jobs for 30,000 Ukrainians, support for 706 Ukrainian rural communities, regular land payments for 298,000 individual landowners who leased their land plots to Ukrlandfarming to feed their families, Ukraine does not need any of that, right?  Four thousand production facilities all over Ukraine, large and modern grain elevators and factories, UAH 7.8 billion paid in national taxes and local rates over the past three years (an average of 2-3 billion hryvnias per year!), 1.1% of Ukraine’s GDP. All that can be easily sacrificed, right? 

What has been destroyed can of course be rebuilt. But that would require massive investments. To create one job at a new factory farm can cost up to 500K US dollars including capital investment. Who would make such an investment in Ukraine under the current circumstances to rebuild the country’s lost production and export potential, who would bring back the thousands of jobs lost? That of course is a rhetorical question. 

We have appealed to the president and prime minister on several occasions and we are doing it again: you promised new jobs for Ukrainians, you promised investment nannies for businesses. In reality though your government official, Artem Sytnyk, is crushing enterprises struggling to survive under the current challenging circumstances to manufacture Ukrainian products, create jobs and pay taxes.   We leave you with a full list of Ukrlandfarming group companies already closed down under pressure from NABU. Unless Artem Sytnuk stops breaking the law, this list is only going to grow.
