Such a conclusion can be drawn from the words of Party of Regions deputy Oleh Tsarev reports Gazeta.ua.
"We see today that every other plant is not working. Whatever our tax service says that we have the lowest interest rate, believe me, as a former member of the Finance and Banking Committee, the tax rates we have are one of the highest. Today, we have the highest energy prices in Europe. And we have the most expensive money in Europe," said the Tsarev on Era-FM.
According to him, a particularly acute problem of expensive money is due to large domestic loans.
"We are not in the habit of blaming the predecessors. But all the governments before the government of Mykola Azarov especially the one right before him were actively issuing in internal government bonds" - said the Tsar.
Earlier, the International Monetary Fund forecast GDP growth in Ukraine in 2013 in the range of 0-1%.
Despite warnings from the international financial institutions, the government of Mykola Azarov expects Ukraine's GDP growth in 2013 to be at a level of 3-4%.
