KIEV, June 25. /TASS/. Ukraine cannot afford to service the external debt that has accumulated over the past three years, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said during a meeting with representatives of the US Chamber of Commerce on Thursday.
"Currently, we cannot service the debt that has accumulated, above all, over the past three years. Ukraine has received $40 billion over the past three years. The total amount required to service the external debt, in fact, is equal to our military spending which makes up 5% of the country’s GDP," Yatsenyuk said.
