"There were more additional loans taken for three years during the regime of Yanukovych than in the whole history of Ukrainian independence. In general, Ukraine received about $40 billion of loans for which we are now paying the interest and due to which we need to receive financial assistance," Yatseniuk said.

"Not to refund the budget deficit but to settle old billion debts," he said.

Yatseniuk said that Ukraine received $9 billion in 2014 and paid off $14 billion debt.

He called on all the Verkhovna Rada Deputies to take political decision on the state budget, which will be represented by the Finance Minister at the Parliament meeting Tuesday.
