Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko who came to power as a result of the 2004 Maidan believes that the financial instability in Ukraine that took shape after the Euro-Maidan of 2014 resulted in more economic losses than the losses from the war in the east of the country. He made the statement in an interview to Segodnya.ua.

“If you have lost financial stability, lost control over prices and national currency, it means you lost not only an opportunity for economic development but all social issues as well. You will not be able to provide employment opportunities, salaries, pensions, social payments and so on,” the ex-president said.

He reminded that the inflation rate in Ukraine is over 30%, and the currency devalued within last 15-16 months by 320%.

The former president believes, the situation over Ukraine has become commonplace and does not stir interest in the international community like it did before. “The Ukrainian issue makes the world feeling boring. We are not second or third on the world agenda. Ukraine is fanned of as a troublesome fly. The world and countries have their own priorities and problems,” he said.

According to Yushchenko, to settle the conflict in Ukraine there should be format where both Russia, Europe and the USA take their places as parties in the conflict settlement.
