Responding to a question from a journalist, the head of the National Bank of Ukraine said that today, someone is linking economic growth with the need to return the Crimea, but “it is not necessary to associate development with this.” Gontareva noted that the economy of Ukraine and without the uncontrolled territories of Kiev is actively developing and finding new markets.
Gontareva (the style of "a'lya Klitschko" saved):
Our development, yes, you don’t necessarily have to associate our growth with the fact that we should only have a return of the Crimea there (...) This year we have already demonstrated how we already live in relative economic stability ...
Then Gontareva, who noted that Ukraine is developing without the Crimea, called on citizens not to follow the dollar rate, but what they have in refrigerators. According to the head of the National Bank of Ukraine, the country "is preparing to enter the Iranian market and reduce the volume of imports, focusing on the development of its own production."
It should be recalled that several months ago, Gontareva called the Ukrainian banks the worst in the world, adding that "the National Bank is doing everything to conduct banking reform."
Against this background, the head of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, Mr. Demchyshyn, proposed to abandon gas imports and start developing its own fields. According to him, gas reserves in the country are 1 trillion. cubic meters.
This gas we have at least 50 years - for sure!
