KIEV, November 27. /TASS/. The unprofessionalism of Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government has dealt a heavy blow on the way Ukrainian citizens perceive the European vector of the country’s development, one of the leaders of the Opposition Bloc, Alexander Vilkul, said at a meeting with the European Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement, Johannes Hahn, on Thursday, the bloc’s press-service has said.
“The Opposition Bloc is interested in the development of a dialogue with the European politicians and EU officials. We welcome the active involvement of the European Union in support of our country at this extremely dramatic period in its history. The unprofessionalism of the Yatsenyuk government has dealt a heavy blow on the Ukrainian people’s perception of the European development vector. The current authorities, while using European slogans as a cover-up, have catastrophically ruined people’s lives. Hundreds of thousands have lost jobs, businesses are being closed, tariffs have been raised and the exchange rate of the hryvnia has slumped. Not a single reform has been carried out to this day,” Vilkul said.
On the first day of the newly elected parliament’s session, the Opposition Bloc proposed a package of bills geared to bringing about a real revival of the country’s economy and protecting the people.
“We are in opposition not because we have a bad attitude to specific politicians, but because we firmly reject the catastrophic policy of war and economic collapse the current authorities are leading the country to. But we are prepared to support any initiatives geared to maintaining peace in Ukraine, restoring the economy and the social protection of our citizens. Also, we shall support compliance with our liabilities to the EU, if this agrees with the interests of domestic producers and contributes to raising the quality of Ukrainians’ lives,” Vilkul said.
