It’s almost like an economic law that if you only try to cultivate your agriculture sector you are going to lose like Latvia did 20% of your population, you are going to lose 9 million people. And I think based on this almost economic law that the population density of a country without industry has to decrease. You should try to make a common pragmatic mission; I think you should try to avoid the ideologies that have kept flowering since 1990-ies. I think this is the time to analyze where you want Ukraine to be.
