MOSCOW, February 20 – RIA Novosti. The socio-economic situation in Ukraine is rapidly deteriorating against the backdrop of reactionary and repressive tendencies, press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

The indicators leave much to be desired, the population has many problems with the rise in prices for housing and communal services, with a sharp avalanche-like growth. And, of course, since we are talking about our a neighbor, about a neighboring country for us, a similar economic situation, a socio-economic situation, I would say, coupled with the manifestation of internal reaction, is, of course, a matter of serious concern, “Peskov said.
