Former Ukraine Deputy PM Says “Another Coup Can Not Be Ruled Out” Among Currency Implosion, Central Bank Charges

Former Ukraine Deputy PM Says “Another Coup Can Not Be Ruled Out” Among Currency Implosion, Central Bank Charges (ZeroHedge, Feb 24, 2015):

A year or so on from the last coup in Ukraine, Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Sergey Arbuzov told TASS, with growing popular discontent, “another state coup can’t be ruled out in Ukraine.” As the cease-fire deal hangs torn and tattered in the Debaltseve winds, the nation is a mess: a new gas dispute looms as Gazprom demands upfront payments; capital controls have been tightened as the $17.5bn IMF loan may not be enough; and the central bank governor faces prosecution as the economy craters. All of these factors have driven massive outflows from Ukraine and the Hryvnia has crashed to over 33 to the USD – a record high (and 70% devaluation from the last coup).
