KIEV, December 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s economy may face dramatic consequences if the situation does not calm down and provocations continue, the country’s first deputy Prime Minister Sergei Arbuzov said.
“As of now, the situation in the economy remains stable,” he said adding the government, the National Bank and other state authorities continued working despite the complicated conditions. “Some say about withdrawn deposits, other say the rate /of the currency/ has been growing. Nothing of the kind is happening now. And another proof is that the government continues working. The Cabinet, the National Bank are working in the complicated conditions, but still they are working.”
“However, if the situation does not calm down and if the provocations continue, the economy may face complicated consequences,” he added.
“We may wake up and learn the bread is more expensive, or any similar situation, which will be provoked by these actions. I did address the protesters - think, tomorrow you will have to feed your families, and the current emotions will fade away,” the first deputy prime minister said.
