He stressed that he considers unacceptable just to hand
over payment of loans to the successors: "We are working for decades.
Therefore, the yoke of debt should be restructured on reasonable terms. It is
a great burden for the budget, and not just for the
budget - it is unbearable for the people of Ukraine".
"We won't pull money out of the pockets of Ukrainian
citizens to pay back our external debts, completely incompatible with the economic
and fiscal situation for the country at war ", emphasized Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
He declared that the Ukrainian party had offered to
private creditors a debt-restructuring mechanism.
“It is not us who accumulated the debts but we are committed
to restructure them and remove the burden, or, so-to-say, the yoke from
future generations,” summed up Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
