Yatseniuk urges MPs to adopt package of laws for survival


Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has called on the Verkhovna Rada to adopt a package of economic laws that are necessary to save the country in the current situation.
He said this after a meeting with Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“The situation is extremely difficult. Our revenues fall every month due to the conflict in the east, due to the destroyed infrastructure, and due to destroyed industrial production facilities… I am asking members of the new parliament to adopt a package of economic laws that enable us to survive in 2015,” he said.
Yatseniuk said that these laws, on the one hand, envisaged the simplification and reduction of taxes, on the other hand, they significantly reduced state budget expenditures and optimized a number of social programs.
He added that Ukraine expect an IMF mission and other international lenders that “don’t give money so easily.” “The first two tranches were given to us for the simple reason that all reforms that were necessary for the country and met international standards have been conducted,” he said.
