The success of the Government's activities will become real changes in lives of citizens for the better, says Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

"What our success should mean? The only one thing - awareness of people their personal lives are changing for the better. This is our only success," he said during a Government meeting on Wednesday.

The Prime Minister gave examples from some areas of life. Namely, the Government plans to launch a number of programs in healthcare sector – "it will affect people, they will start to use them, will understand that they are necessary," noted Volodymyr Groysman.

Among other steps that would prove that the situation is beginning to change, in his opinion, include increase of salaries, construction of roads, creating of new jobs.

"Our goal, our success should be to ensure each Ukrainian citizen be successful. To achieve that it is just vital for us to work very hard and not to give in to panic that is sometimes spread, in particular, by politicians", said the Prime Minister, adding sometimes statements and behaviour of politicians are inappropriate.

Volodymyr Groysman considers exploiting difficult situations a humiliating and insincere game by those “who are trying to use people’s emotions, their problems to improve their ranking by 1-2%".

The Prime Minister assures political populism will remain history. "Many of them should be ashamed and they should be left on the political sidelines. But only the Ukrainian society can do that – nobody else can", summed up Volodymyr Groysman.
