NEWSWATCH Kyiv Post: Yatsenyuk fires back at Russia, oligarchs and those who thwart reform
The Kiev Post covers Sept. 16 remarks by Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk addressing multiple challenges facing Ukraine, including a goal of European integration in the face of Russian opposition.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk hardly left anyone out during a televised government meeting on Sept. 16. He charged at Russia, parliament, government coalition partners, local authorities and the customs and tax services.
Reacting to the Kremlin’s threat of imposing a blanket trade embargo on Ukraine if the country and the European Union went ahead with a free-trade deal on Jan. 1, Yatsenyuk said: “We are ready. Neither the Russian Federation nor any other country has right to alter our decision on European integration.”
