“The country is being dragged into debts. May be current 2.6% of GDP is not so critical now, but it will the critical one in two-three years. Let’s see the official data: GDP is supposed to be about $188 milliard by 2010 and correspondingly, the debt must be scaled up by 20% of GDP ($37.6 milliard). Currently, the state debt is $14.8 and it will be increased by 2.5 times by 2010,” said Pinzenyk.

Ex-Minister drew attention to an increase in debt service cost in 2010 which will be over $3.8 milliard. He also stressed that the sum of $188 milliard exceeds $19 milliard of current national currency reserves: “Such hazardous policy resulted in the default of 1998.”
