The president of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko according to the appeal of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Justice and the Public customs service, according to part of the second article 94 of the Constitution of Ukraine applied the veto to the Law of Ukraine "About modification of some acts of Ukraine concerning minimization of influence of financial crisis on development of the domestic industry".
