«There are two elections. There is no time to build up. A huge level of public debt, for the maintenance of which we spend more than we can earn as a result of a small increase. The raw material economy and total corruption program the following crises. There remains a risk of further collapse of Ukraine.

But the election result is a chance for us all to unite and to start working on real transformations that will radically change people’s lives, «summed up the MP.
