Abromavicius decision to leave his post should be a 'wake up call as international stakeholders start carefully examining recent developments in Ukraine, says Adomas Audickas, the senior advisor to Ukraines economy minister.

Audickas also hopes that the ministers intention to resign is approved by the government instantly. He also warns if nothing changes in Ukraine concerning the officials methods of administration, the decisions of international stakeholders will probably not be favourable for Ukraine.

Abromavicius decision to step down also jeopardizes the development of privatization reforms that could help Ukraine to attract new stakeholders and to improve investment climate. Yet Audickas is not completely unoptimistic about Ukraines future: We hope that [Ukraine] will have a technocrat, professional minister which will be allowed to work, to implement reforms including this huge privatization program, which is very needed for the country, he says.

Audickas is planning to continue working in the ministry, on a project to reform the state-run energy giant Naftogaz. The main aim of the project is to put a professional board to work in the company and make its activities more effective.
