Leonid Kuchma: Putin does not do charity

Former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma believes that the presidents of Ukraine and Russia Viktor Yanukovych and Vladimir Putin have certain agreements. He said this while responding to questions from journalists after the roundtable on Friday, December, 20th.

"Putin has never done charity and will never do," Kuchma said.

"When I listened to the speech of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov on these figures (the problems of the Ukrainian economy – Ed.) in the economy, I felt badly. Well, on the one hand, we have the money, but, on the other hand, it’s not a good thing that we always borrow at the expense of future generations," the former Ukrainian president said.

As it was reported, Russia bailed out Ukraine with a package worth at least $20 billion on Tuesday, December, 17th
