Ukraine’s Prime Minister Speaks (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2014):

Ukraine’s acting PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk speaks. Highlights below:

  • UKRAINE TO FULFILL ALL IMF REQUIREMENTS, PREMIER SAYS – like Greece?
  • UKRAINE PM SAYS BELIEVES RUSSIAN TROOPS WON’T INVADE E. UKRAINE – because they are there already?
  • UKRAINE PM SEEKS TO INCREASE RESERVES TO EASE FX FLUCTUATIONS – “Whatever it takes”, even printing dollars
  • UKRAINE PM SAYS NAFTOGAZ SHOULD BE PRIVATIZED – Ukraine oligarchs delighted by this development
  • UKRAINE PM SAYS NEW GOVERNMENT HAS NO INTENTION OF NATIONALISING PRIVATE COMPANIES” – Ukraine oligarchs even more delighted by this development

And finally, why all the above was irrelevant:

  • UKRAINE PM SAYS RUSSIA REFUSES TO HOLD BILATERAL UKRAINE TALKS

Oh well, as long as it fools those USDJPY ramp algos if only for a few minutes.
