clearly declare that in 2015 we do not expect private investors. 2015 is the
year of investments from the international financial institutions. The International Monetary
Fund, the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development,
European Investment Bank. These are exceptionally international financial
institutions. They are like pioneers. They are first and they are the
guarantors of the implementation, including a reform program for private
investors", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk during the

foreigner must understand: the rules in his country are almost similar to those
rules existing in Ukraine", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
Together with that
we have to curb corruption. He reminded that the Government in synergy with the
President of Ukraine had drafted and the Parliament adopted the
"unprecedented 5 laws on combating corruption". "The result of
this law is that this morning I, as the Prime Minister, received an official
request from the State Fiscal Service: Mr. A. Yatsenyuk, please explain the
sources of Your income. Hence, now the Prime Minister
is preparing an official response for the State Fiscal Service. As certain incomes, which, for instance, concern dividends are not
taken into account by the tax administration, the State Fiscal Service.
So, I was asked where I had taken the money. Therefore, in principle, they have
started from the Prime Minister," said the PM.
He was quoted
as saying, "macrocorruption has been managed to overcome. At a
macro level". "At a micro level it still exists. And to curb it is possible in several ways. The first is the implementation of all
have adopted. The second is the reduction in the number of regulatory agencies what has been already done.
The third is increased
responsibility for corruption. And fourth - wages. If a level of salaries in the bodies, which are essentially corrupt, remains at this
level, we can
never curb it," announced the Head of Government.
