Demonstration against G8 Summit in Le HavreYatsenyuk’s government worked out amendments to the Tax Code that increase taxes for small businesses and enterprise and institution employees in 2016. In such a way, the government decided to get additional budget revenues that will be “split” next year.

The government also plans to introduce VAT on agricultural products that will automatically level up the retail food prices. At the same time, the tax burden for some privileged sectors will be reduced.

And there’s more to come. The Verkhovna Rada plans to adopt the Tax Code (the draft law 3630 or its version in another covering with amendments to the current tax legislation) that will come into force in 2017. This government’s draft law imitates the tax “reform” and will hold the Ukrainian poverty for years.

Taking into consideration the above, the POWER OF PEOPLE Political Council decided to support the protest meeting against the government’s draft law on Tax code, which will begin at the square near the Verkhovna Rada at 9:00 a.m. on December 24.

In addition, the meeting coordinator from POWER OF PEOPLE, the Political Council member Yuriy Adamovsky addressed the heads of local party units with an appeal, firstly, to ensure the participation of the regional representatives in the meeting and, secondly, hold protest meetings at the local level, clearly defining the POWER OF PEOPLE position regarding the draft law 3630 for authorities at all levels.

No one but us will protect our interests. The more people come, the more chances we have that people’s deputies will remember their responsibility to the Ukrainian people and stop the government lawlessness.

We appeal to everyone: take part in the protest meeting near the Verkhovna Rada against the government’s tax code on December 24, 2015.

Meet at the square near the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday at 9:00 a.m. Please wrap yourself well. If possible, take the POWER OF PEOPLE flags
