Kiev ‘Brainwashing’ Ukrainian People as Economy Collapses – Former PM

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov says that authorities in Kiev are driving the country into the depths of economic depression, while brainwashing ordinary Ukrainians into believing that their political predecessors and ‘Russian aggression’ are to blame for their troubles.

In a comment posted Saturday on his Facebook page, Azarov stated that “the Kiev regime is brainwashing Ukrainians using several myths. Let’s take a look at a couple of them: [The first is that] the economy is collapsing, and the people are worse off because Russia is an aggressor and there is a war going on.”

The second myth, according to the former prime minister, is that “‘our predecessors stole everything.’ However, as the folk saying goes, ‘he who shouts ‘get the thief!’ the loudest is a thief himself’, and so it is in this case. The economic results of the first half of 2015 have been compiled. Raw statistics show that the country’s exports have fallen by 40 percent (!) compared with the first half of 2013, in quantitative terms by $12 billion. That is, in one year, exports have fallen by approximately $25 billion.”
