“Forex reserves were fading away and as of February 2015 only around 5 billion dollars were left. Today it’s 15,5 billion. It’s here where the money from the international organizations was sent first things first and 100% of funds from IMF. Irresponsible politicians claim that IMF funds get stolen.
