Our task is to make Kyiv better. We are sure that the revival of the territory of the First Kyiv Machine-Building Plant will become a worthy continuation of our work in this direction».
«Privatization is one of the drivers of economic development. It is with it that the new stage of life of the plant «Bolshevik» begins in favor of citizens and the state. And the developed privatization conditions guarantee investment and social protection of workers», the head of the State Property Fund said.
