Realizing the economic consequences of the escalation of the conflict with Russia, the allies quietly turn away from Ukraine
“Europe is shyly covered by penny aid and several hundred bulletproof vests, allowing our Eastern neighbor to build gas pipelines bypassing Ukraine,” — said the Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine Anatoly Peshko.
According to him, under the guise of artificial promotion of the topic of inflation of the hryvnia, the country carried out a planned and skillful robbery, at times in excess of the appetites of the former government.
“The new team led by Alexander Turchinov, Arseniy Yatsenyuk and the former head of the national Bank Stepan Kubiv does not deny himself anything. And the London real estate of the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Oleg Makhnitsky for tens of millions of dollars is already legendary. Moreover, the election of the President and new appointments, including the head of the national Bank, did not affect this trend,” the expert says.
He is sure that the limiting factors that are now applied to Ukraine, put our country in a position of bankruptcy.
“Today, even the most liquid enterprises of industrial and agricultural complexes begin to operate at a loss. The main reason for this is hyperinflation and the lack of an effective fight against it. Only areas with budget support can maintain their viability. But in a month and they may be on the verge of a foul. Ordinary people began the struggle for survival and preparation for a cold and hungry winter,” Anatoly Peshko said.
For real leveling of a situation, according to him, it is necessary to stop war first of all. Secondly, the currency for critical imports should be bought from the national Bank at the rate of 8-10 hryvnia per dollar.
“Business is still working with this indicator and understands that everything else is an artificial cheat. It is on this index must be procured essential goods that we have not produced. And first of all, these are energy carriers, military — industrial complex equipment, pharmaceuticals, spare parts for the agro-industrial complex, necessary fertilizers and plant protection products,” the expert analyzes. All other areas unable to service their foreign currency requirements in the respective auctions.
Anatoly Peshko is convinced that the actions of the authorities should be aimed at the growth of the domestic market and the real increase in the purchasing power of the population. These conditions in the very short term will allow not only to level the situation in the economy, but also to enter the already partially empty, because of the so-called sanctions, markets of Europe and Russia. Such steps of the government will increase the welfare of every citizen of the country, saving thousands of lives of Ukrainians.
