Moreover, for implementation the strategy he even made a separate government body with high-sounding title – State Agency for Investments and National Projects, headed by the notorious Vladyslav Kaskiv.
For more than a year the agency has spent several billion hryvnias, but the single result of its work was a chain of corruption scandals and no real investment. Hundreds of millions allegedly spent on investment promotion abroad and even Yanukovych’s personal invitation for investors in Davos to look at naked Ukrainian women were unable to improve the situation.
There is plenty to talk about the difficult legacy of Yanukovych, inherited from previous governments, but to maintain objectivity, several points should be mentioned. First, the vast majority of previous Ukrainian governments are governments of Yanukovych himself or members of his team. Even during the period of so-called "Orange thaw," his Party of Regions was in power from September 2005 to December 2007.
