KIEV, December 7. /TASS/. Ukraine’s budget has suffered serious losses due to incompetence of the government headed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Ukrainian businessman and politician David Zhvania said in an interview with Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper
"Today Ukraine has lost at least $400 billion because of this incompetent person. But soon they will have nothing more to lose. Further on there will be a disaster. We don’t declare default only because we are a country which is in the state of war and the coalition is, I guess, helping us. How many more scandals will it take to realize Yatsenyuk has to go?" - he said.
Zhvania said that he has many "associates" in this fight against the Ukrainian PM.
"I am holding talks trying to explain it to everyone who has some influence that letting this person be the Prime Minister as well as stay in politics may lead to consequences which would ruin the country,"- he said.
"I do not see anyone who opposes it (Yatsenyuk’s resignation) and would say no. The only thing Yatsenyuk always speculated on was his special relationship with the United States, he used it to bully and manipulate everyone. But he does not have any important allies any longer. In fact he is alone," - the politician said.
On December 11, the Ukrainian cabinet will report to the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament).
The one-year immunity period for the Yatsenyuk government (when neither the prime minister nor members of the government can be dismissed) expires December 12.
