KIEV, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Resumed talks with EU and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on financial aid will be one of the key and top priority tasks of the new government, Ukrainian politician and candidate for premiership Arseniy Yatsenyuk told journalists on Thursday.
Asked whether talks with Russia about further tranches of the $15 billion bailout would go on, Yatsenyuk said negotiations would continue describing Russia as “a partner,” and not just a neighbor.
The politician also warned that the new government’s measures would be unpopular, while he would possibly be the most unpopular prime minister in Ukraine’s entire history. However, he added, those measures were indispensable as the country was in ruins and the treasury empty. He promised that the government would do its best to prevent a default.
