Poroshenko instructs Finance Ministry to calculate and present losses to Cabinet from Donbas blockade
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has instructed Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk to calculate and present losses to the Cabinet of Ministers from the blockade of Donbas.
"Today, Finance Minister Danyliuk was instructed to prepare calculations for the government. And the government should count losses, minimizing them, but inform the society about the price that Ukraine will pay for these irresponsible decisions [trade blockade of Donbas by activists]," he said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels on Wednesday.
Poroshenko noted that not only the DPR/LPR leaders, but also the political forces that took responsibility for the blockade: Batkivschyna and Samopomich factions, will pay for the negative consequences of the blockade.
