 Yatseniuk Presented Cabinet's Mission in Parliament and Voiced Key Challenges for Ukraine

The Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk presented Cabinet's Mission in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Ukraine currently faces three challenges, Yatseniuk noted while presenting, Censor.NET reports.

According to the prime minister, the main challenge is that to Ukraine's independence. "It has to do with Russia's aggression. Russian Federation has annexed Crimea, sent its terrorists to the Donbas, and is currently destroying economic potential of Ukraine. Economic dependence on Russia also affects this," Yatseniuk said.

The second key challenge, according to Yatseniuk, is economy's losses incurred due to the war. "20% of the Ukrainian economy are located in Luhansk and Donetsk. Due to the Russian aggression, we lost 20% of income, 20% of currency earnings, 20% of economic potential of Ukraine. The infrastructure is destroyed, enterprises stopped," the prime minister specified.

Yatseniuk also said that the government manages to keep the budget gap at the 4% GDP level.

The third challenge which Ukraine faces is corruption, Yatseniuk said.

"The challenges that we face can be met only altogether," the Cabinet head said, meaning that Rada, the Cabinet, and the president should unite their efforts.
