He thanked the European Commission for the decision to provide Ukraine with the first tranche of macro-financial assistance worth EUR 600 million at the end of last year. "Timely receipt of funding by Ukraine has become extremely important to maintain macroeconomic and financial stability in Ukraine," Shmyhal noted.
