The bailout plan should include "just economic means and methods as well as political unity and responsibility of all political forces," said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a press conference on Tuesday, December 29.

Answering questions on statements made by coalition partners regarding the bailout plan for Ukraine and changes in the Government, and re-elections, Arseniy Yatsenyuk noted, "I can explain how to go out of the crisis economic situation. Just by using economical means and methods as well as political unity and responsibility of all political forces."

"When the country is at war, when Ukraine lost 20% of the economy, when 5% of gross domestic product is spent on national security and defense, when we need to fund the army, when we need to continue reforms, very tough - we just need to follow the pattern of our partners. For example, Poland, which was not at war, over 14 years had been showing political responsibility and step by step and day by day conducted the difficult and unpopular reforms, and became a member of the European Union," he stressed.

"So, my advice about the bailout plan: grit your teeth, especially Ukrainian politicians, and do your work. It’s a question of history, the work we are doing," underlined the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
