Ukraine is on the verge of sovereign bankruptcy. A wave of politically motivated killings and mysterious suicides of former officials to instill fear in Kiev. A year after the election of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko remains deeply mired in political and economic crisis, writes The New York Times.
"Poroshenko, weather you like it or not, you can not cope. The Ukrainian government is so unstable and in its inactivity that is unable to take the necessary steps to build a unified and independent state, "- said president of the American non-profit organization" Project on Transitional Democracies, "Bruce Jackson.
Attempts by the political settlement of the relations between Kiev and militias in the south-east of Ukraine reached an impasse because of procedural disputes. Destruction of the economy continues to deteriorate. Hoping to avoid a default high-ranking officials involved in lengthy negotiations with creditors, but the deal is still not concluded. Now, officials do not hide that the $ 40 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the United States will not be enough to keep the country from falling apart.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment for those who participated in anti-government protests last year, was the fact that the new government led by Poroshenko still failed to fulfill promises to eradicate the rampant corruption.

"The ongoing confusion becomes a source of contention between the Government of Ukraine and its European allies, especially Germany and France, whose leaders have helped to achieve a ceasefire and the most frustrated by slow pace of change. Not surprisingly, therefore public confidence in the government fell, "- the article says.
