Today is 100 days of work of Tymoshenko`s govt

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko denies the accusations of her opponents that her government has been busy with populist actions.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this today, speaking at the extended session of the government, devoted to summing up the results of its activities over the first 100 days of work.

“Certain political forces, certain directors, including opposition representatives, accuse that this government has been busy with populism, that this government has been proposing its sweets, but does nothing real for the economic growth”, the Prime Minister noted.

“Of course, the opposition has the right to criticize. But I would like to remind that all political forces, taking part in elections, have left views and propose to increase salaries, pay off [depreciated Soviet-era] deposits, increase the number of workplaces, and so on. But, when they come to power, they somehow forget about their left views and social slogans, with which they took part in the election. They begin to build their own businesses and subject the power to their business, forgetting about their promises at every election”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

The Prime Minister stressed that the main slogan of the current government is “So said so done”, while the slogan of other political forces is “So said and forgotten”.
