The current energy and economy blockade has been artificially created and is aimed to destroy Ukraine. It is directly or indirectly in the interests of the Russian Federation, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman announced during a conference "Transformation’17. What will reforms change in the lives of Ukrainian citizens" on Thursday.
"In fact, such blockade is a blockade against Ukraine. I assume a rather clear position: Ukraine is suffering from the blockade. This blockade is directly or indirectly in the interests of Russia. And our task today is to do everything to ensure that none could stop us on our way," stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
The energy and economy blockade were artificially made, he accentuated.
"We must overcome this challenge and ensure the development of our State, in particular provide economic upturn," he said.
