"We have a new head of the National Bank, and we see the [banking] system is stable, everything is fine, and there has been no change in the banking sector over the reshuffle. That is, the new management of the NBU adheres to a certain course, the independent National Bank works as it did before," the press service quoted Draganchuk as saying.

The deputy minister noted the Fund has questions about the Constitutional Court's ruling with regard to the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine(NABU).

"The ruling provides for changes to the law on NABU, which need to be introduced and adopted. Of course, the IMF is monitoring this process," he said.

According to Draganchuk, there are no obstacles for Ukraine to receive the disbursement as early as this year, and the working process is underway.
