The International Monetary Fund (IMF) notes the progress of Ukraine in holding of the reforms. It also expects the fulfillment of earlier agreed preliminary measures for the final agreement of the new three-year EFF program for $5,5 billion by board of directors as IMF Representative Gerry Rice stated.
“A very active dialogue takes place now. The constructive discussions continue,” Rice said.
However, the IMF representative found it difficult to announce a possible date of consideration of the Ukrainian issue by board of directors.
As we reported, the EU will assign the second tranche of macro-financial aid after the Ukrainian side lives up to the IMF conditions.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Finance Minister stated that Ukraine may stop cooperation with the International Monetary Fund after the fulfillment of new three-year program, which is currently discussed.
