Ukrinform
Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk has said that the government was not holding any talks with businessman Ihor Kolomoisky on PrivatBank.

He said this in a comment on a Financial Times article in the PrivatBank case, the government's press service reported.

"This morning, the Financial Times published an article in which I comment on the PrivatBank case and allegedly emphasize that we are seeking a compromise on this issue. The article was immediately reprinted by Ukrainian media outlets that added from themselves that the government is holding talks on seeking a compromise on this issue. In order to avoid further manipulation and publicity, I want to dot the i's and cross the t's. The government is closely studying the situation around PrivatBank (including talks with its former owners, which were held by the bank's previous independent supervisory board). The government is not holding any talks with anyone," Honcharuk said.

He also said that in an interview with FT journalists he stressed that he did not know the legal details of the case so deeply so as to comment on the merits. "But I am sure that every effort will be made to protect Ukrainian taxpayers' money and Ukraine's national interests. It will be done in close consultation with international partners," Honcharuk said.

Earlier, the Financial Times published an article stating that Honcharuk said in an interview that the Ukrainian authorities are seeking a compromise with Kolomoisky in the PrivatBank case.
