on social media

At a public
meeting in Dnipropetrovsk on Sept. 11, Poroshenko, a multimillionaire oligarch who backed the
2004 Orange Revolution, complained to Yanukovych that “due to some pressure,” a
cabinet resolution introducing a new tax on car imports — sought to protect
domestic car producers from external competitors — has still not been made

who owns a car assembly plant in Ukraine, went on and asked the president to
intervene and help out with the matter, which would impose a new utilization fee to counter new import duties recently imposed by Russia against Ukrainian cars. Poroshenko’s remarks apparently infuriated
Yanukovych who responded aggressively.

“A bad dancer always finds excuses. What are you talking
about and who are you talking to? I’ll rip off your heads very soon – right
after the elections – if you just talk and do not deliver,” Interfax-Ukraine
news agency quoted Yanukovych as saying.
