EU and US will give money only to opposition government — Gernot Erler
Gernot Erler, coordinator of German-Russian partnership in the German Foreign Ministry said that the US government and the European Parliament would provide financial aid only to the opposition government.
“… The address for the aid is clear: the interim government formed by the opposition. This is a much-needed perspective, to offer the population a realistic path if the power comes to the opposition,” said Erler in the interview to Deutschlandfunk.
the new government will receive the aid only on the condition of relevant political and economic reforms; adoption of the 2004 Constitution is not on this list.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine might apply for $19 billion EU loan for the period 2014-2020. Opportunity for the financial transfer will be known only after signing a long-term IMF agreement.
“The purpose of this assistance is to support the reformers during the transformational phase,” said Gernot Erler.
