KIEV, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s inflation rate will be at about 12-14% in 2014, Ukraine's parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told lawmakers on Thursday.
He also said that Ukraine is standing on the verge of the economic and financial bankruptcy.
Ukraine’s overall state debt has reached 53% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), or 800 billion hryvni ($75 billion under the Central Bank’s current official exchange rate), Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk stressed.
As of January 1, 2013, the country’s gold and foreign exchange reserves were estimated at $34.6 billion, he told lawmakers, adding that the reserves are now “only at $15 billion.”
The Ukrainian authorities plan to cut staff of bodies of power. Approximately 24,000 out of 249,000 workers on staff will be dismissed. The Cabinet of Ministers also intends to impose a tax on wealth. He noted that it will affect about 300,000 citizens of Ukraine.
