"The previous assessment of Ukraine's GDP for January-July showed the growth by 2%. This is not bad figure due to the crisis in the euro zone. But this is obviously not enough for significantly improvement of the living standards in Ukraine," Azarov said.
According to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, in July compared with June, the industrial production grew by 3%.

I pay attention of the heads of relevant departments to this situation and instruct them to propose measures to support these industries immediately," he said.
