Prime Minister of
Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk has invited the leaders of the parliamentary
coalition to consultations with the Cabinet of Ministers to tackle further
economic reform program and adoption of necessary legislation in Parliament.
"I emphasize just
crucial laws, but not political decisions," he said at a Government’s
meeting on Wednesday, February 4.
"I consider it
appropriate if the Government meets with the leaders of the parliamentary
coalition to discuss both the cooperation program with the International Monetary
Fund and the subsequent economic reforms much needed for the country", he
The PM noted that the
Parliament was to take a political decision, a sort of depriving of an ex-presidential
status for Viktor Yanukovych. "I do not know for whom he has remained the
president...", added Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
"But after our
consultations with the coalition members we will have to proceed to more
practical decisions. Hard, those not always easily perceived, but vital for the
country", he stressed.
The Prime Minister
expressed his belief that "the parliamentary coalition in synergy with the
Government and the President of Ukraine will continue pursuing the proper
reforms and bearing a joint responsibility for all the decisions", “And each
day we will have less populism, more pragmatism and more emphasis on concrete
results, but not on short-term political dividends, which disappear quickly."
