On Tuesday, May 22, the mission of the International Monetary Fund for the first review of the four-year program with Ukraine in the amount of 15.6 billion dollars begins its work.
About this reported Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
The mission will start work in Vienna. We are talking about the extended financing program approved in March, within the framework of which Ukraine will receive 15.5 billion dollars from the fund over 4 years. The first tranche in the amount of 2.7 billion dollars arrived at the beginning of April.
In addition, in a conversation with Alfred Kammer, director of the IMF’s European department, the Ukrainian prime minister discussed the Fund’s assistance in Ukraine’s European integration and post-war reconstruction.
Shmyhal reminded that work is ongoing on the creation of the International Compensation Mechanism, in order to direct the confiscated Russian assets to the reconstruction of Ukraine.
“We are counting on the support of the IMF in this direction, as well as further assistance in the consolidation of financial support from partners from all over the world,” Shmyhal added.
