 State Budget 2015 Will Be Challenging and Stressful in War Conditions. Populism Will Not Pass - Yatseniuk

State Budget 2015 in the conditions of war will be challenging and stressful, but the government insists on tax and budget reform as a prerequisite for future economic growth.

This was stated by Prime Minister Arsenii Yatseniuk, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"We're going to take the risk of unshadowing the economy and it will be a prerequisite for future economic growth," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.

He reminded that the tax reform involves reducing the number of taxes and their rates, primarily that of the unified social tax.

Speaking about the state budget 2015, the prime minister said that "populism will not pass."

Yatseniuk reiterated that the economy is now totally dependent on the war.

"War sucks out billions of hryvnia, it does not allow us to attract private investments leading to an outflow of deposits from the banks, destroying industrial capacity and infrastructure, especially in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," the prime minister said.
