President Petro Poroshenko today participated in the Council of regional development.

During the meeting, the President announced a series of important theses of his vision of the situation in the country. gathered the brightest of them.

The blockade of Donbass

“Limited exchange of goods may be resumed, as soon as Russia and its puppets will return to the Ukrainian owners and the Ukrainian state stolen plants. Due to the blockade Ukraine has lost the last sphere of influence on these territories”, – said the head of state.

“For those who want to push and give the land of Putin is an absolutely acceptable strategy. For those who want to these businesses, and this strategy was the anchor that keeps the occupied territories, hoping to return to Ukraine, it is a matter of life and death,” he said.

The President also said the threat otamanschina and anarchy. He called organizers of the blockade by the masters of PR.

“But they deceived society. What blockade, when there is a hole in the border, including with the Russian Federation of hundreds of kilometers. In fact, it was a special operation to push out the occupied areas of Donbass in the Russian Federation”, – said Poroshenko.

About the economy

Poroshenko gave the analogy of the economic situation in the country with medicine.

“If we draw an analogy with medicine, it looks like this: we, being on the verge of the other world, was in intensive care and survived. We were discharged, we went and full of energy. And we will live happily ever after,” said the President.

“Inflation, the burden of high prices – the fact that people now care about the most. This year, it will be measured, hopefully already by a single digit – less than 10%”, – said the President.

“By 2019, it is our common task, we should reach an inflation of about 5% per annum,” he added.

The President recalled that last year the inflation rate amounted to 43% per annum.

About re-election

Poroshenko said that he sees no sense in holding early parliamentary elections.

“No prospect that the extraordinary result of the vote was elected to Parliament with a large reforming potential than the one that now works,” – said Poroshenko.

According to him, the election campaign would put on pause all the reforms at least a year, “and then the new composition of Parliament would be so diverse and different that there is nothing and hope for the new coalition.”

“That’s why I am categorically against re-election, which requires widespread opposition. But the backbone of it – the two parties that 8 years ago, only by some miracle did not create a broad coalition, which in 2006 and 2014, was at the helm of the state, for which we are still harvesting,” – said Poroshenko.


Poroshenko accused the deferred tranche of the International monetary Fund organizers of the blockade in the Donbass.

“Today (March 20) we will have intensive negotiations the Minister of Finance, head of the National Bank, the Prime Minister, and I want to be in it – in order to fix the results that was caused by the absolutely irresponsible behavior of Ukrainian politicians”.

He noted that he began Monday with a meeting on the issue.

“One of the participants proposed to send to Washington as special envoy Andrei Ivanovich (Garden) Semenchenko, Yulia Vladimirovna (Tymoshenko) Parasyuk,” said with irony Poroshenko. He added that it was a joke.

“If “Samopomich” organized and patronized the blockade, then let it be and corrected the consequences of this sabotage,” he said.

On the use of force

The President said that Ukraine is some confusing democracy with the “Makhnovshchina”.

“Tell me, the French Republic is a democratic country? About the incident at Orly airport heard it all? The attacker grabbed for the military machine – and immediately, at that moment, was shot”, – he said.

“The country is a high terrorist threat, and we were in the belligerent country. Here’s a French illustration of the fact that democracy is not anarchy, not permissiveness. Monopoly on the use of force is not only the state, even when it is democratic,” – said Poroshenko.

“We and Putin is not necessary to lose statehood, if we will not learn, unless we know that all protests must wear exclusively peaceful nature, passion for weapons should be provided only on the front. Fortunately, the opportunity is now wanting is – army contract effectively completed”, he added.

On judicial reform

“The attack of pseudoactivity in Balaclava on the head of the High Council of justice last week – is nothing but an attempt to thwart judicial reform, to preserve the unacceptable state of things, to intimidate the judges and those involved in the reform of the Supreme Court,” – said Poroshenko.

“And we try to present this situation to radically change. The state must and will provide judges and officials of the justice system adequate protection,” he said.
