Yushchenko awaits effective counter-inflation measures
He gives a yellow card to the government
Speaking about inflation in Ukraine at his quarterly press conference, President Victor Yushchenko said: “I would like to see more concerted and less politicized work of all national institutions. We must seriously rework on pragmatic and branch level an effective measure on fighting inflation and render support for it politically”.
According to the President`s press-office, pointing to inflation having already reached 10 percent mark Victor Yushchenko stressed: “Inflation is a test for authorities and, first of all, for the Government. What is happening now is a yellow card”, - he said urging politician to leave politics behind, stop arguing and to give professional response to the situation with inflation growth. At the same time President stressed unacceptability of fighting inflation through imposing administrative limits and pressure. To him effective inflation counteraction begins with preparation of “the realistic state budget” and refraining from administrative pressure.
