A Speech by Vadym Novynskyi During the Ceremonial Ship Launching, Dedicated to the 65th Anniversary of the Kherson Shipyard

Dear Kherson residents! Dear plant workers, veterans and guests! I congratulate you on this remarkable date – the 65th anniversary of the founding of our plant in 1951. Over 300 vessels have been built during this period, including the 40 vessels produced over the past decade. It is notable that a new vessel is being launched today, on the anniversary, as a response to those who do not believe in the prospects for the shipbuilding industry.

Searches at Smart-Holding

Today, over two hundred people in camouflage stormed Smart-Holding’s Head Office and other companies that are part of the ‘Smart Holding’ group (of which I am a beneficiary). Not only causing criminal damage, this violates all legal procedures and ethical standards. I consider that such actions are designed to put maximum pressure on me as a member of the opposition.

Those who came to power in Kiev to the applause of western elites now hope that their international partners will turn a blind eye to the way they run the country.
