In 2019, for debts for loans, Ukraine needs to pay half of the state budget. Speaking in parliament, one of the leaders of the OPPOSITION BLOC Oleksandr Vilkul said, “The state budget adopted during Poroshenko provides for this year revenues at the level of UAH 1 trillion. This is according to the budgeted rate of 29.4 UAH/USD is 34 billion dollars. We have to pay $ 18 billion in foreign debt this year. This is almost half of the state budget! There will be no money left for development, but there will be no funds for salaries either.”
“People! If the rate is 50 or 70 hryvnia for a dollar, and this can become a reality with the ongoing crisis, will the moderators of corporate events or activists sitting in the Rada, who do not understand anything in the economy, help you a lot?” he stressed.
“We have already had over these five years characters who have the first employment record -“Minister” and “People’s Deputy”. What hyperlups has it led? - said Vilkul. “Therefore, the OPPOSITION BLOC is going to parliament and will be a stabilizing factor that will help the new President to take the country out of the crisis.”
Earlier, on the live TV show “Freedom of Speech” on ICTV, Vilkul said that the OPPOSITION BLOC is “a pro-Ukrainian common sense party”, and Ukraine should become “a strong, non-aligned country that makes decisions”.
