Head Of Ukraine’s national oil and gas company Naftogaz Andrei Kobolev has admited that Ukraine is a “classic failed case” and his country has almost no chances to get a successful developing economy, according to the Ukrainian media outlet Novoe Vremya. He further noted that these already low chances are only falling. Thus, Ukraine is not able to be competitive on the global stage.
According to the top Ukrainian official, one of the key problems is a lack of skilled people and the Ukrainian economic model is collapsing.
Kobolev’s remarks are in contrary to an official attitude of the Poroshenko regime, which claims that Ukraine is a rapidly developing “democracy” with “high chances” of the economic success. However, it seems that even top managers of the Ukrainian state corporations do not believe in this.
