KIEV, March 31. /TASS/. A third of Ukraine’s GDP has remains on the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), Ukrainian Interior Ministry Arsen Avakov said on Tuesday.
"It is difficult to speak about reforms when 30% of GDP has been left on the territories [of the self-proclaimed republics]. It is difficult to speak about reforms when society is engulfed by military operations in the east," Avakov told the 5th national expert forum "Ukraine. Stress Test."
The Ukrainian society needs "to have patience and pin hopes on the presumption of the police’s rightness during the reforms," Ukraine’s interior minister said.
