Severe Crisis of political power affects the economy and the public sector of Ukraine, in fact the country is on the verge of default. In the country increases unemployment, the national currency over one year fell by more than 3 times.

"If They (the Ukrainian authorities) hinted of default, at the present time do They say about it quite openly and calmly. Tell that he has the ability to be. The government is going To default. I have the impression that our Government is not watching TV and reading Newspapers. Because If you look at what takes place in Greece, we can see that This is true for all and in the 1st turn ordinary people. Have not had a single default in the world to protect the people. They suffer in the 1st place, " Firtash said in a statement released on the Last working day of the week interview to the Ukrainian newspaper.
The businessman stressed that since investors are not willing to go as long as the Ukraine, the authorities would do well to have a dialogue With businesses within the state who would be able to expose her shoulder, however, in his vision, the Ukrainian government does not conduct such a dialogue.
"I think that today we need to talk with their domestic businesses and large corporations. With them it is necessary to sit, to speak and to understand what we can do for them, and to set realistic goals for the development of industries. Unfortunately, the Government in one year, never met and never talked To the business. Neither the directions Nor in General With the Federation, Nor With the trade unions. They closed in themselves and carry out their program. Here's the program and brought them to the wealth where They now Tell us that there will be a default, " - said Firtash.
