KIEV, December 11. /TASS/. Ukraine has lost 20% of its revenues over developments in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions known as Donbass, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Thursday.
“As much as 20% of our economy is concentrated in the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions. We have lost 20% of the economic potential, foreign currency proceeds and revenues,” Yatsenyuk told the Ukrainian parliament while presenting a government program.
“Today the situation in the economy is more complex than 9 months ago. But a key threat that remains is a threat to Ukraine’s independence,” the premier said.
