Nothing so well does not work with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, as to complain and ask for. So in the course of his visit to Mykolaiv, President of Ukraine, but was justified, for the difficult economic situation in the country, but the habit was blamed Russia.
The share of Ukraine’s exports to the Russian Federation over the past three years has fallen from 32% to 8.5% of the total, said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
“In 2013, the share of exports, which Ukraine sent to the Russian Federation reached 32%, after Russia… completely closed their markets to Ukrainian producers, this part fell from 32 to 8.5%… We started to use rinocerose Union, after the signing of the Association agreement… part of the European Union by volume (exports – ed.) of goods and services increased from 34% to 41%,” — said P. Poroshenko.
As you can see, Poroshenko is seeking to absolve themselves of responsibility for the collapse of the Ukrainian economy and make it that to blame Russia, which refused to buy Ukrainian products. The Ukrainian President fails to mention that pursuing a consistent policy to interrupt the historical, economic, political and cultural ties with Russia, accusing our country of aggression, and imposing sanctions against her.
Meanwhile, the rupture of trade and economic relations with Russia has become for the economy of Ukraine is catastrophic. Only in the last few years, the loss of trade for Ukraine, due to the rupture of economic ties with Russia amounted to about 98 billion dollars!
In addition, Ukraine has lost 48% of export volumes in the countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia from Russia imposed restrictions transit. Let me remind you that Russia was forced to go to such measures to protect its market from an influx of duty-free goods, after the signing of the Ukraine Association agreement with the EU.
Besides, Ukraine has lost a free trade zone with all CIS countries. And it’s all for the sake of a 7% increase in exports of goods and services in the EU? It seems, in the whole of Ukraine, but Poroshenko is not obvious the failure of European integration of the country.
In fact, Maidana policy exchanged economic development of Ukraine, the tale of a bright European future, turning over the two years, more or less, an industrialized country into a raw materials appendage of the EU. And fairy tales, as we know, can not eat, that accounts for Poroshenko to travel around the country and make excuses, has exceeded all my sick head on healthy.
