Kyiv is supposed to receive USD 1 billion

International Monetary Fund executive board is to decide on whether to provide a new tranche of the credit to Ukraine. The reform program was established in March 2015. According to the initial plan, Ukraine should receive USD 17,5 billion during four years, with quarterly revisions of the program. However, Ukraine received only the first two tranches. In 2015, allocating the next tranches was suspended due to a political crisis and the government change.

After the new Cabinet, headed by Volodymyr Groysman, was established, the negotiations with IMF renewed. Today the Fund is going to assess how the reforms proceed. The decision on whether to allow the next tranche depends on the changes required by IMF.

Ukraine hopes for a positive decision. Yet, Russia already announced it is going to vote against providing financial help to Kyiv.

Receiving the tranche is a key condition to get more financial help: USD 1 billion of a loan guarantee from the USA, EUR 600 million loan from the EU and US 500 million loan from the World Bank.
