Default Puts Ukraine in the hands of Moscow: Parliament adopts a farewell budget

Default Puts Ukraine in the hands of Moscow: Parliament adopts a farewell budget

A Kiev unsuccessfully trying to solve their financial problems. The International Monetary Fund has recognized Ukraine's debt to the Russian official, that is to be paid. Term - three days. Pay nothing. Next default. In Parliament take a farewell budget. And the president of Poroshenko from the shame that he experienced the day before, when the Council for reform scandal between Saakashvili and Avakov, sent to Brussels - to the headquarters of NATO. He says that there is feeling among allies.
There seems to be possible to exhale: next policy not rush into each other with glasses of water, do not swear, everything just wide smile, kiss and even a long time do not want to let go of his arms. You can not notice and familiarity behavior when President 45 million of the country literally twirl from side to side - all for the sake of a photo where your hands together and all smiles again.
But none of the European countries, in reality and not lean on Ukraine and acts as a guarantor for the loan to Russia. A parallel during this photograph came news from the International Monetary Fund: IMF Executive Fund acknowledged Ukraine's debt to the Russian official.
"The requirement associated with Eurobonds in the amount of US $ 3 billion, and maintained by the National Welfare Fund of the Russian Federation, is a formal requirement in terms of the policies of the IMF debt in arrears owed ​​to official bilateral creditors," - said the IMF.
"Ukraine is ready for direct talks with Russia", - said the channel "112".
Kiev tone immediately changed. All recent months, authorities Maidana said that the debt to Russia, they are not very much and recognize. Now, nowhere to go. And the country's Finance Ministry officially acknowledged debt to pay Ukraine can not.
"Eurobonds maturing in December 2015, related to debt obligations of Ukraine that it can not pay in accordance with their original terms," ​​- said the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine.
"The term of payment - December 20. We expect from Ukraine offers to the new IMF decisions. We are ready to consider them. You're three days. We have a plan of action. In the case of non-payment of Ukraine of its obligations, we will take measures to protect their interests in the courts" - warned the Russian Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov.
Moreover, since January 1, 2016 Russia will be forced to stop the action of a free trade zone with Ukraine. And about that Kiev also warned repeatedly.
But instead of urgent rescue its economy from collapse, Poroshenko in Brussels makes beautiful statements about freedom.
"Ukraine is aware of the damage caused by the decision of the Russian Federation, but we are willing to pay that price in order to be free and to confirm the European choice" - said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in Belgium.
Only from whose pocket will pay this price? The Verkhovna Rada of December 17 attempted to consider the budget for next year. Money is not even the most elementary.
"Objectively: the ideal budget has never been and never will" - said from the rostrum of the Ukrainian parliament, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
"This budget farewell. Farewell to the government budget and the budget of the farewell to the country", - said the deputy of Rada Yulia Tymoshenko.
After the effect of the free trade zone with Russia will be stopped, the situation in the Ukrainian economy will inevitably further deteriorate.Because, despite the bellicose statements, Ukraine continues to deliver the goods in Russia hundreds of millions of dollars at zero customs rates. But from January 1, 2016 these benefits will no longer be.
Russia, until recently called for a compromise, it did not want to look either in Kiev or in the European Union.
"We stop a free trade zone with Ukraine, as it has entered into a similar document with the EU. That is, we are not the initiators constriction connections or termination of some contracts. We have only to answer". - Said the head of the faction of the Liberal Democratic Party in the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
"The European Union requires of us that we maintain the free market for Ukrainian goods, despite the fact that Ukraine will submit to actually trade, sanitary control and all other requirements of Brussels. But this is unrealistic," - said the chairman of the committee of the Russian Duma Foreign Affairs, representative of the faction "United Russia" Alexei Pushkov.
"Europeans want to integrate Ukraine into Europe at the expense of Russia, - says the first deputy head of the faction" Fair Russia "in the State Duma Mikhail Emelyanov. - This cunning plan - someone else's hands to rake in the heat."
"We must protect the Russian market, the need to protect the Russian manufacturer in order not to get at a disadvantage compared to European producers," - says First Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov.
"Ukrainian goods in Europe today is not expected, it is quite clear. It is clear that this leads to a further rise in the cost of Ukrainian products to the non-competitiveness of Ukrainian primarily agrarian products on the Russian market is also experiencing a significant excess of various agricultural commodities. This is in After all, in large losses for the budget and for the Ukrainian social sphere ", - said the publicist, doctor of economic sciences Nikita Krichevsky.
Thus, the new year Ukraine will meet in this economic condition of the country did not know the history of its independence.
