Yatseniuk: “All unpopular decisions were mine”
The Head of the government held a speech at the Parliament on February 5
Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said he personally made all the decisions concerning unpopular measures and reforms, including those of raising social tariffs. The official stressed he was well aware of his political responsibility.
“I took up this post, understanding what kind of consequences could have been. I made the decision to change the tariffs. I and my team made the decision to revise social policy and the entire system in this country. I made all the unpopular decisions that no Prime Minister was able to make for the last 20 years” he said.
Previosuly, U.S Ambassador in Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt shared his view on the key mistakes of Yatseniuk's government. According to him, “priority number one” for Ukraine in 2016 should be fighting and eliminating corruption at all levels.
