Yanukovych: We have commenced systemic structural reforms that aim to create a powerful and modern technology economy...and secure high living standards for the population and protect its most underprivileged groups. Key in this regard is that by raising minimum welfare standards, we have managed to substantially reduce the portion of the population living below the poverty line.
What on earth is he talking about? The IMFirtash-sponsored 50%+50% utility hike? The tax hike for small businesses? The crackdown on secondhand clothing stores? The 25% increase in crime rates?
Who gives a shit anyway? Guys who write upbeat articles like this and this?
