Mikheil Saakashvili: Yatsenyuk’s time is up
Mikheil Saakashvili gave an interview to German Die Zeit
Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk did not live up to the expectations of citizens and lost their trust, stated governor of Odessa region, former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili in an interview to German Die Zeit.
“Yatsenyuk’s time is up. Ukrainian citizens no longer trust the state and the government. They’ve suffered a lot. They don’t understand how come Yatsenyuk says everything is fine. That’s why currently less than 1% of Ukrainians support him as PM”, - Saakashvili said.
According to Saakashvili, “another problem is the influence of oligarchs, with whom Yatsenyuk is on good terms”. “After Euromaidan 2014 oligarchs had less influence on politics than ever before. They no longer influenced the Parliament’s decisions the way they used to. But their impact on the Government’s activities expanded within the last couple of weeks. Yatsenyuk received the trust of Parliament a few days ago just because MPs, bribed by oligarchs, voted for him”, - he pointed out.
Saakashvili believes that Yatsenyuk has always seen a rival in him: “In me he has always seen a person who can replace him. He will never overcome this fear”, - the governor claimed.
