Ukraine has good chances to receive the next tranche of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in case of the adoption of the state budget for 2017 in the near future. This was announced by the Deputy Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Oleg Churiy in "Evening prime" on "112 Ukraine” TV Channel.
"Ukraine has good chance of receiving the next tranche. At this time, the risks of not getting the tranche are narrowing. The reason for this is the end of the year and there is not a lot of time. And in order to make a decision regarding the allocation of the IMF tranche to Ukraine, there must be a meeting of the Council. There is a fair chance. This mainly depends on Ukraine, on the ability to adopt the budget quickly in accordance with the requirements which are reflected in the program. This is why I think, that in case of adoption of the budget in the near future, we have a good chance to get it,"- Churiy said.
Speaking about the situation, when Ukraine does not get the tranche, Deputy Governor of NBU said: “Ukraine can go without the tranche some time. But without the IMF program, alas, Ukraine could not last long.”
