Political scientist Bortnik: Ukraine has formally kept all signs of the state, and we still have a hope


Today Ukraine is the country, dependent on the West. About it in the exclusive comment to online edition of News of Ukraine - From-UA was told by the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of the Ukrainian institute of the analysis and management of policy Ruslan Bortnik.

according to our interlocutor to speak about independence of Ukraine today quite difficult as the country is too dependent on external players.

"Economically we depend first of all on the international creditors led by the IMF. The memorandum with the IMF actually determines budget parameters, social policy, gas prices and many other things which have to be defined by the Constitution, the budgetary code, laws of Ukraine. All this on the contrary, this policy is defined by the international creditors. The political policy too, unfortunately, is defined by often external players. What have to be reforms and bodies, fight against corruption how and when to form the CEC and what to adopt electoral laws - all this too, unfortunately, is often regulated not by the Ukrainian laws and the Constitution, namely some arrangements or instructions from the outside", - the analyst notes.

according to Bortnik, Ukraine has formally kept all signs of the state, and there is a hope that in the following political cycles the country will manage to be returned at least to the term of "the second Kuchma".

"Ukraine rather skillfully balanced between the East and the West, at the same time retaining the national interest in the main things", - the political scientist adds.
