Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Social Policy Minister Sergiy Tigipko has said he believes that Ukraine lacks professional politicians.

"I think that, first and foremost, Ukraine lacks professional politicians. Here, as they say, 'a fish rots from the head down.' This concerns both the government and the opposition," he wrote on his page on Facebook, while communicating with users on Thursday, Aug. 23.

"There's a lot of populism. There's little understanding of what to do in economics, the social sphere, culture and education," Tigipko said.
