The policy of populism robs the future of the country, threatens its independence and economic development, and should fall into oblivion. On Tuesday, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this during a press conference after his working visit to the United States.

"Populists want to deprive Ukraine of its future as they always have been doing this. They promise a lot, unfortunately, for decades being in power they have done absolutely nothing and are creating conditions that deepen crisis more and more every year," said Volodymyr Groysman.

The  Prime Minister believes that Ukraine has three enemies - Russian aggression, corruption and populists. "All these three phenomena in our lives undermine our independence, want to deprive us of the future as well as prospects for economic development," he noted.

"The time has come to demonstrate responsible policy, we have to be absolutely patriotic to our country and to build it in such a way that people feel, on the one hand, the state’s care, on the other hand, that the country has created such conditions under which a person can realize itself, and those vulnerable receive quality social support and assistance," the Prime Minister underlined.

In turn, Volodymyr Groysman highlighted that he is open and will do his utmost "to make Ukraine an independent modern European country with great development of the national economy and the prosperity of each Ukrainian family."

The Prime Minister is confident that the policy of populism must go into oblivion for 25 years of independence of the country. "If someone from populists ever known wants to deprive us of the future, I will just prevent them from doing this," he stated.
