Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk declares to restore peace in Ukraine the world must act “as a single civilized democratic institution that is fighting for peace both in Ukraine and in the entire world”.
The Head of Government announced on Wednesday, November 12, chairing a Government’s session.
He has reminded a meeting of the UN Security Council of the United Nations is due to summon today with the main emphasis on Ukraine.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed that the Minsk agreements are strictly followed by Ukraine, but aren’t followed by Russia and Russia-led rebel forces. "On the eve of the meetings of the UN Security Council, G7 Summit, that of the OSCE and the Ministerial Council of the European Union, we wish to reaffirm: everything needed to de-escalate the situation under the Minsk accord is being made by Ukrainian government and Ukrainian authorities".
He noted that a "redline" notion is circulating in international politics, "They always say - if one crosses the redline, we will take additional decisions, we will consider imposing additional sanctions, step up pressure".
"I would like to call on the world: stop suffering from geopolitical color blindness. Not dozens but hundreds of redlines have been crossed. Russian military aggression has claimed thousands of lives," said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
"Peace is vital for Ukraine. To attain peace the entire world must act as a single civilized democratic institution that is fighting for peace both in Ukraine and in the entire world. We are doing everything within our power. Only that our stamina has its limits. Especially, when its concerns confrontation with a nuclear state, which is armed to the teeth", said the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
According to him, Ukraine expects and hopes for "a common position and true assistance and support, including financial issues, macroeconomic policy".
He reminded that an IMF mission had arrived to Ukraine. Prime Minister of Ukraine instructed the Ministry of Finance and all central executive authorities to immediately hold a meeting with the IMF experts.
"And I believe that the IMF team will help the National Bank of Ukraine to carry out a balanced currency exchange policy", he summed up.
