To government sessions

Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko criticized Ministers for their bureaucratic approach to work at a government session on Thursday.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, in particular, the Prime Minister stressed that it takes Ministries a very long time to prepare documents to govenrment sessions. In particular, the documents that had to be passed on Thursday to develop alternative energy sources in Ukraine, were not ready.

The Prime Minister listed the example of the Verkhovna Rada, where a committee has 30 days to assess documents, and if it fails to be on time, the documents are passed without taking into account the committee’s assessment.

Yulia Tymoshenko ordered Ministers to prepare all draft resolutions of the Cabinet of Ministers during 10 days.

In particular, the Prime Minister criticized the Finance Ministry, the Ministry of Economics, and the Justice Ministry of Ukraine. “If you did not write anything in 10 days, than, good-bye, we put the document for consideration of govenrment without your visa. It means that you don’t know how to organzie work of your Ministry”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

“I don’t know whether Ministers can communicate with each other and find understanding. I hope they can. And if not, we will hold govenrment sessions for 20 hours. Bring your vacuum flasks, borshch, fritters, everything you need, and we’ll work round-the-clock. And if somebody will ask me to let him go, I won’t”,  Yulia Tymoshenko emphasized.
