Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko predicts that the arrival of an International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission in Ukraine will take place this fall. He stated this on the air of ICTV TV channel, RBC-Ukraine reported.
"The Fund's mission raises questions, including those about the budget. There is every reason to believe that the mission will arrive in October or November. We are constantly communicating, we actually have telephone talks every single week,” Marchenko stated.
He sees no reason to believe that the Ukrainian authorities have certain problems in cooperating with this organization.
As we reported earlier, yesterday, on September 21, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal held an online meeting with Director of the European Department of the IMF Alfred Kammer.
The parties discussed the cooperation of the official Kyiv with the Fund.
"The head of government said that a letter was sent to the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva with an appeal to start the online mission in Ukraine," the statement said.
