Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko doesn’t rule out the President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko may not sign a law on restrain of trade extra charges at retail trade networks and supermarkets.

According to the government’s press-office, she announced this on air of the “5-th channel”.

Yulia Tymoshenko admitted that in the process of considering of anti-inflation draft laws in the Parliament she had been made a condition that they would be voted only in case of support of a law “On the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine”.

As Prime Minister I had to exchange with votes in the Parliament: anti-inflation laws, vital for the state, rested dead weigh for two months. It is awful but I was set a condition that the law on the Cabinet of Ministers in which government is practically subordinate to the Secretariat of the President and National Defence and Security Council will be approved in exchange for anti-inflation laws,” she explained.

“The worst happened was the law on the Cabinet of Ministers voted in exchange for anti-inflation laws had been signed by the President for half an hour, while the one restricting today extra charges at retail trade networks, supermarkets when they reach 50-70% hasn’t been approved yet. I assume it can even fail to be inked by the President,” Yulia Tymoshenko said.

Premier emphasized that she feels shame for voting in the parliament for the Cabinet of Ministers draft law as well as for the anti-inflation draft laws.

At the same time Yulia Tymoshenko promised time and again that Government would overcome inflation processes within the country for six months as it had been promised before.

“For now 5 months are behind and we experience fall of inflation and I’m convinced we will set everything in its place,” Yulia Tymoshenko summed up.
