The Minister of Finance of Ukraine Serhiy Marchenko estimated the probability of the announcement of default in the country. He told this in an interview with “NV”.
According to him, currently this is not an economic reason: “I’ll have a concept of “default” have not been used. Objectively, the default is a political decision, and therefore economic grounds for default in Ukraine no”.
Marchenko added that, despite the current crisis, Ukraine remains in a relatively stable macroeconomic position. “The budget situation is difficult, but we have it under control and it is manageable. There is no reason for any fears, risks and experiences”, — assured the Minister.
