Some EUR 600 mln aid from EU will come to Ukraine after IMF tranche
Some EUR 600 million of macro-financial assistance from the European Union will come to Ukraine after the transfer of $1 billion from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.
"This is not just $1 billion [a tranche from the IMF], which the country needs as air. The related macro-financial assistance of the European Union, for which we've also fulfilled all the criteria, that will come immediately after receiving the IMF funds to the accounts of the National Bank is EUR 600 million of additional funds," he said at a meeting of the Regional Development Council in Kyiv.
The president noted "certain politicians, together with our external enemies, tried to stumble us in the decision on the IMF."
