Balcerowicz criticized Saakashvili addressed the Cabinet Groysman: This accusation without evidence

Бальцерович о критике Саакашвили в адрес Кабмина Гройсмана: Это обвинение без доказательств

Co-chair of the group of strategic advisors to support reforms in Ukraine, the representative of the President of Ukraine Cabinet of Ministers Leszek Balcerowicz called the “accusation without evidence” criticism from the mouth of the head of the Odessa regional state administration (RSA) of Mikheil Saakashvili in the government of Vladimir Groisman. About Balcerowicz said at the briefing, which was broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”.

“I would say my opinion on my own experience. On what experience are based the statements of Mr. Saakashvili? He worked with the government, as far as I know. I have not seen him, so this accusation without proof. This is a very bad practice, it reminds me of Soviet times. Secondly, it is unfair. And third, it harms the Ukraine, because the West, especially in the West, there are stereotypes that Ukraine has not done anything. This is incorrect. Given the initial conditions, much has been done, but do not claim those negative stereotypes about Ukraine in the West, it harms the Ukraine,” said Balcerowicz.

We will note, earlier the British newspaper The Guardian published an interview with Saakashvili, in which the latter calls the government of Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman “pile of mediocrity” and indicates a lack of Cabinet vision of reform.

Later, the head of the Odessa regional state administration on his page on Facebook has denied a newspaper published and rebuked the newspaper in the wrong interpretation of his words. Saakashvili noted that he has serious reservations as to how were formed the new Ukrainian government, and called his composition “weaker than we would like.” “But I would never call this government a bunch of incompetent people”, although there are those who were involved in corruption, the representatives of the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and those who are very weak in terms of facing the challenges Ukraine”, – said Saakashvili. Also the Governor of Odessa region declared that he Parks views coincide on many issues.
