Nataliia Korolevska: Prime Minister, who openly admits his unprofessionalism, has to resign same as entire Cabinet of Ministers

This was stated by the MP from the OPPOSITION PLATFORM – FOR LIFE party Nataliia Korolevska, when commenting on the statement of Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal about the second peak of unemployment after the ‘weekend quarantine’.

 “The effects of the quarantine and the economic crisis have paralyzed the economy and the work of hundreds of thousands of enterprises in our country.  One more factor has supplemented these two ones – the lack of professionalism and ignorance of the current government, which by its wrecking decisions only aggravates the situation. The Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that the ‘weekend quarantine’ led to a second wave of unemployment.  If at the beginning of the quarantine measures in Ukraine there were 361 thousand registered unemployed, a month ago – 396 thousand, today the number accounts for 420 thousand already.  That is according to official data only, according to unofficial one – this figure has long exceeded 2 million,” Nataliia Korolevska said.

The MP also stressed that wage arrears are growing rapidly along with unemployment. Debt in October increased by 6.5% compared to September, and as of November 1 amounted to almost UAH 3.8 billion.

“A speaking example of the government’s negligence – the ‘weekend quarantine’ – not only did not reduce the number of cases, but also aggravated the economic situation in the country. The next blow will be the January lockdown, which has already been decided on by the government.  We call for giving an immediate end to these criminal experiments on the country and people, paying off wage arrears, developing a concept of ‘smart’ quarantine, adopting economic recovery program, supporting business and industrialists, and implementing urgently a set of anti-crisis measures proposed by the OPPOSITION PLATFORM – FOR LIFE party.  If the government and the parliament are not ready to make these decisions, there is only one way out of this situation – the complete reset of the entire vertical of power!” Nataliia Korolevska summed up.
