Even before the appointment of Denis Shmygal as Prime Minister of Ukraine, the office of the President of Ukraine had asked ministers to develop a government work plan without IMF tranche.
This publication reports “Ukrainian truth”, citing its own sources, reports MFN.
As reporters from Ukrainska Pravda found out, before appointing a new cabinet, the president’s cabinet asked ministers to prepare a government work plan without an IMF loan.
The publication writes that as soon as Igor Umansky was appointed finance minister, he admitted that Ukraine could not do without a tranche from the IMF. It should be noted that the government questioned the president about this before the start of the coronavirus pandemic in Ukraine.
As soon as the pandemic reached Ukraine and the government imposed quarantine, the authorities realized that Ukraine would face default without an IMF loan.
Recall that for Ukraine to continue its cooperation with the IMF and receive the next tranche, Parliament must vote at second reading the “anti-Colomian” law.
Earlier, we indicated that the OSCE had told us when the next TAG meeting would take place.
