And that is just the start of it. They are already cutting wages for government employees.
Of course the news won't mention this but there is already a ton of resistance and "buyer's remorse". There is no way the current government is going to survive and it appears that what will happen in ukraine will make Greece look like times a plenty.

What an awful situation for the people in Ukraine, most who were too busy working and surviving to take sides during Maidan.
