An IMF mission will arrive in Ukraine this week to assess Ukraine's progress in implementing the Memorandum with the Fund under the Stand-By Arrangement. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced at a media conference on September 14.
"Ukraine has fulfilled all the conditions and all the benchmarks set out in the Memorandum with the IMF. We expect a positive assessment from this mission, which will be final in preparation for the disbursement of the next tranche. In late November or early December, we can receive the next tranche of the IMF in the amount of $750 million," the Head of Government noted.
Moreover, Denys Shmyhal notes that the Government is cooperating fruitfully with the IMF and assures that the Fund's mission will be successful.
The Prime Minister also accentuated that Ukraine had received a positive message from the European Union to obtain macro-financial support in the amount of € 600 million. Now, the PM said, the European Commission is waiting for the IMF mission to commence. The date of receiving the tranche from the EU has been extended and, according to Denys Shmyhal, this tranche may be provided this fall.
