"All U.S. officials consider political unity between the President and the Government and political responsibility of the whole coalition as a keystone to success in carrying out reforms in Ukraine," Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a Government’s meeting on Friday, 12 June.

He recalled that the next plenary week the Parliament will consider bills "necessary to make Ukraine continue gradually following the path of reforms."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed that the parliamentary coalition should support these laws because they are the preconditions for receiving the next IMF tranche in the amount of USD1.7 billion.

These draft laws, the Head of Government noted, include an increase in independence of the National Bank of Ukraine, make it possible to reform the energy sector and bring order to the financial component of NJSC Naftogaz Ukrainy.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk informed that there had already been discussions with coalition partners regarding these bills: "I am convinced that the coalition will support not only these three bills, but the entire reform plan, which we are consistently implementing to make 2016 a year of growth."

The Prime Minister reminded that yesterday he together with Finance Minister of Ukraine Natalie Jaresko returned from the United States, where they were on a working visit: "The level of support that we have in the United States among U.S. top political officials - including the U.S. President, Vice-President, White House, Congress, Senate, Departments of Energy, Finance, Commerce of the United States - shows that Ukraine is moving in the right direction."

The Prime Minister underlined that after meetings of the Ukrainian delegation with the US leadership were made relevant statements, including by the White House, appropriate Departments and the International Monetary Fund "that the reforms being carried out by Ukraine are difficult, but proper, and Ukraine is on the only right path."

"All U.S. officials consider political unity between the President and the Government and political responsibility of the whole coalition as a keystone to success in carrying out reforms in Ukraine," Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized.
