Ukraine is counting on financing about $20 billion as part of a future program.
The mission of the International Monetary Fund in October will begin work on a new program with Ukraine.
This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmygal in his Telegram following a bilateral meeting with the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva.
“The IMF mission will begin work on a new special program with Ukraine in October. This was agreed with the head of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva today in New York. We outlined the next steps in bilateral cooperation,” the report says.
It is noted that during the meeting, the head of government also spoke about measures to stabilize the domestic economic situation in Ukraine, the transfer of the economy to “military rails” and the timely submission of the state budget for 2023 to parliament.
“I am grateful to the IMF and to you personally for the quick response to the challenges facing Ukraine in connection with the armed aggression of the Russian Federation and for providing assistance in the amount of $1.4 billion. We look forward to continuing our active and close cooperation, because IMF support is the basis for further financial development our country,” Shmyhal said.
Georgieva at the same time assured that the International Monetary Fund remains an adamant partner of Ukraine.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the head of the National Bank, Kirill Shevchenko, said that Ukraine expects to launch a program with the International Monetary Fund in November and receive about $20 billion from it. According to the chairman of the NBU, a program plan is being developed that would allow financing both the budget deficit and the deficit in the balance of payments of Ukraine.
