Saakashvili sees an imminent catastrophe for Ukrainian economy

Head of the Executive Committee of Ukraine’s Reforms Mikhail Saakashvili predicted an inevitable catastrophe for the country’s economy. He spoke about this on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel.

According to the politician, a weekend quarantine, previously introduced in the country, can lead to a crisis. However, he noted that these measures do not work sufficiently. “I have been to many places over the weekend where cafes and restaurants work quietly,” he said, adding that the police “calmly cover” open establishments.

Despite this, most of them have no visitors, Saakashvili added. In his opinion, this is a sign of a crisis and a very severe stagnation, and therefore additional restrictions will only worsen the situation. “The economy will not stand it, it will burst, it will cause the tragedy of millions of new people,” the politician concluded.

On November 11, a weekend quarantine was introduced in Ukraine. From 00:00 Saturday to 00:00 Monday, only critical infrastructure objects can work: grocery stores, pharmacies, transport. Many business representatives and service workers protested demanding that the quarantine be lifted, which deprives them of their earnings.
