Tymoshenko Ukrainians compared with the Papuans

MOSCOW, 27 Jun — RIA Novosti. Ukraine exports only raw materials, although he could earn much more by selling finished products, said head of the faction “Batkivshchyna” Yulia Tymoshenko in an interview with NewsOne.

“We, Papuans, trade in raw materials, you know? Grain, sunflowers, corn, canola, wheat,” she said, adding that the situation with the sale of agricultural land in the country is unacceptable.

The former Prime Minister said that Kiev receives from the export of “poor 18 billion dollars.” According to Tymoshenko, it is necessary to follow the example of Italy, which trades raw materials and goods, such as pizza, cookies, spaghetti, and earn from one hectare is ten times more than Ukraine.
