Ukrainian businessman Firtash denies plans to go into politics
Business and politics are "two different things," he said.
It is not that I like or dislike any particular party, I simply do not want to do politics, the businessman added.
Firtash owns large chemical plants in Ukraine, Estonia and Tajikistan. The businessman invests in the financial sector and real estate.
His main assets are concentrated in the chemical sector. In Ukraine, in particular, he owns Azot (Cherkasy), Severodonetsk Azot Association, Concern Stirol (in Horlivka, Donetsk region) and Rivneazot.
Firtash's other business interests include Crimea Titan (Armiansk, Crimea, 50% less one share), its subsidiaries Irshansk Mining and Processing Plant (Zhytomyr region) and Vilnohorskiy Mining and Metallurgical Plant (Dnipropetrovsk region); Crimean Soda Plant (KSZ, Krasnoperekopsk, Crimea), and Nadra Bank (Kyiv).
Outside Ukraine, the businessman owns two plants: Nitrofert in Estonia and TajikAzot in Tajikistan.
