Turchynov: Today we cannot say that Ukraine is an independent

Ukraine will survive only with a strong economy, said in an interview with «Gromadska» Secretary of the national security Council and defence of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov.

«I see only one format for Ukraine is a strong economy, a strong state, and strong national state is the only guarantee of our survival. …When we talk about independence, today we cannot say that Ukraine is independent, because we are economically dependent,» said he.

According to the NSDC Secretary, the fact is the state dependence on foreign lending.

«While we are dependent, we will tell you how we should live… For example, timber (wood.– «GORDON»), we say: maybe let’s we’ll be there the cabinets to do, and we say: no, let’s round. No one wants to cut down their forests. Such an attitude to Ukraine as to the logs, humiliating. But you know who pays the money, he can order something,» – said Turchinov.

He noted that Ukraine’s dependence on external financing to stop after the economy recovers «at a sufficient level.»

Published in February, the index of economic freedom of the American research Institute Heritage Foundation, Ukraine is ranked 150th among 180 countries of the world. At the moment the Ukrainian economy the least free in Europe.
