The support by the constitutional majority of all governmental initiatives is a step to unite and save the country, a step, which inspires faith and confidence in each Ukrainian. The country is moving forward. The country is struggling. The country will win,” said Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a press conference on Thursday, July 31.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has noted that "even the Parliament realized that the only correct option is the unity of the nation", "unless there is unity, there won’t be a nation."

The Prime Minister outlined the main provisions of the adopted bills.

He said that the war in the east of Ukraine "had a terrible impact on economic indicators":"That the taxes stopped to be paid in the east because there is fighting there, they fight against Ukraine. However, he said, the Government continues financing social payments on the territories under control: "And every city, which is liberated by the Ukrainian military, immediately receives a full package of social and financial aid."

Also, despite the economic challenges, the Government has managed not to reduce payments of pensions and wages.

In addition, according to the PM, has been adopted a number of important decisions on financing "both the military operation and renewal of the Ukrainian areas in the east, bombed by Russian terrorists ": “The total amount of funding provided for the rebuilding of Donbas is UAH 2 billion, and the financing of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the National Guard, every Ukrainian who is now involved in the anti-terrorist operation and the fight for Ukraine has been increased by UAH 9 billion”.
