The Minister of Finance of Ukraine Natalia Jaresko ready to gather a technocratic government team “draws” people with no political past, not obeying any of the oligarchs or politicians. She wrote about this on his page in Facebook.
My plan for the withdrawal of Ukraine from the crisis, the head of the Ukrainian Finance Ministry has written after, according to her, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk invited her “to start a dialogue and to present his plan to them quickly bring the country out of crisis.”
“In my opinion, to cope with these tasks in such a political situation can only technocratic government — that is, the team “draws” people who don’t have a political past, not subject to any of oligarchs or “friends” of politicians and have no political ambitions for the future,” she said.
“I’m ready to assemble a team that right now is able to work for the interest of the whole country, all its citizens and not of some political or business groups,” wrote Jaresko.
Jaresko called five principles on which, in her opinion, should be formed technocratic government: the members must serve only the people of Ukraine, they must have zero tolerance to corruption and political interference, they should not worry about the political career and participation in the elections, they all need to believe that Ukraine could become successful and, finally, the members of the government must be an experienced crisis managers.
