KIEV, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s early parliamentary and presidential elections would aggravate the economic situation in the country and put it on the brink of collapse, Ukrainian First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Arbuzov warned on Thursday evening.
“I’m against the government’s resignation,” he said in an interview to the 1+1 TV channel. “What will we gain from that? First, there is no money for re-election. The state will have to live without a budget for 2014. Who needs this?”
Arbuzov stressed that at the present moment the country had the totally legitimate authorities — from the president to parliament. “So, we don’t need re-election,” he said.
Now, the first deputy prime minister said, every Ukrainian citizen should mind his work and then everything would be all right.
“Let the opposition do its job and we will do ours,” he stated.
