Ukrainians are so politicized that they do not notice the improvement in the economy, says Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

According to Interfax, he said: "There are critics today that say bad things. Those are the people who have been doing nothing for years and have done nothing in their lives. They don't even know the terminology but they criticize. That is why we live in a very politicized environment now."

"Political tension is so high today and people's heads are so filled with non-sense by politicians that they are losing their guidance," added Yanukovych.

The head of stated that the people in the meeting represent executive power and thus should not indulge into populism but tell the truth to the people. "We don't need percentages or districts, we need the development of the country, the improvement of people's lives," he stressed.

According to Yanukovych, Ukraine has growing tendencies of citizens' well-being. He said that the salaries have grown by 15% and the consumer basket is growing. "Despite the slow down in economic development as it is happening all over the world, we see that the basics of life, basics of well-being, that is citizens' income are growing."
