UNITED NATIONS, September 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev hopes Russia will stick to all points of an agreement on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis signed in Belarusian capital Minsk in early September, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Wednesday when speaking at the UN General Assembly session.
Yatsenyuk said during a speech in the Council on Foreign Relations in New York that his country will avoid default if it slashes expenditures.
Yatsenyuk said Ukraine has adopted a package of austerity measures, adding that he and his colleagues were doing everything possible to stabilize the country’s financial sector.
Ukraine has been in turmoil since the end of last year. Riots of those discontented with the then-Ukrainian authorities’ decision to suspend the signing of an association agreement with the EU resulted in a coup in February 2014.
According to UN data, some 3,500 people, including hundreds of civilians, have been killed and hundreds of thousands of people have fled Ukraine’s war-torn southeast as a result of the clashes during Kiev’s military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.
