According to the him, the incomes of the Ukrainians decreased to the level of February 2005 with respect to foreign currency because of recent hryvnia slump.

This plan on restoration of Ukraine envisages that the country will make a major breakthrough by 2020, reaching the level of GDP per capita comparable to today's of Bulgaria, doubling the current Ukrainian one. The next goal will be to "catch up and leave behind" Poland during the following five years.
However, the experts assure that the plan is too ambitious, because international practice and experience of states-reformers shows that, perhaps, only miracle will help to climb out within ten years from the "jam", which Ukraine turned out to be in not to mention reaching the level of Poland.
"It will be a miracle. Not the economical miracle but political and economical one," Timofiy Mylovanov, PhD, University of Pittsburgh, the member of editorial board of VoxUkraine assured.
