In fact, from 2007 to 2010, the government took (in debt) to $ 26 billion. 26 billion dollars despite the fact that Ukraine does not become stronger. The government from 2010 to 2014 took over 20 billion. In fact, total debt today is 65-plus billion dollars that lie on the shoulders of the Ukrainians and the Ukrainian economy”, – said Groisman.
