More than 250 employees of the Melitopol slip bearing plant held a rally demanding the resumption of trade relations with Russia. According to local media, the company’s employees claimed a severe crisis at the plant, caused by a break in trade with Russian partners.
According to the workers of the enterprise, the restoration of trade relations will help to preserve the enterprise, and will also help to increase production capacity, create new jobs and increase GDP growth.
“We demand the government to turn to us – people who work in Ukraine, but not to Europe and America”, said the plant’s employees.
Also, the protesters said that due to the termination of trade relations with the Russian Federation, they were heavily curtailed by salaries.
