MOSCOW, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian economy rating has improved thanks to Russia’s help. “Our rating has improved and we’ve moved out of the financial zone where we had previously been,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said at a meeting with RF Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
The Ukrainian prime minister thanked the Russian leadership for its decision to purchase Ukraine’s sovereign bonds and for the first loan tranche that had been provided on Monday. “It’s a serious stabilizing factor, I’m grateful to the RF leadership and government because the main thing is that the agreements are promptly implemented,” Azarov said.
