“Opportunities that Ukraine will receive through economic and financial aid packages from the U.S., the EU and the IMF will enable to stabilize the economic situation”, emphasized Ukrainian PM A. Yatseniuk during the Government meeting and conference call with the heads of regional state administrations on Wednesday, March 5.

He has said that tomorrow Brussels will host an extraordinary meeting of EU Heads of State or Government, in which the Ukrainian PM will participate at the invitation of the Council of the European Union.

The PM underlined that yesterday the U.S. Secretary of State announced the first package of economic assistance that Ukraine would receive: "I hope as soon as possible - today and tomorrow - our European partners will also announce an economic package of financial assistance to Ukraine."

"The state of the public finances is very difficult. Those opportunities that we get due to economic and financial aid packages from the U.S., the EU and the IMF will allow us to stabilize the economic situation," the PM said.

He has also emphasized that the Russian military aggression on the territory of Ukraine will have not only political and security but also economic consequences: “the unwarranted presence of Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine affects, first of all, extremely negative the Ukrainian economy”.

“Once again I call on the Russian government to immediately withdraw troops, perform bilateral and multilateral agreements. What’s happening in Crimea threatens not only the national security of Ukraine, but also the whole world. Only Russia is responsible for these actions. Russian leadership has and will have no reason for military aggression on the territory of Ukraine”, said A. Yatseniuk.
