The International Monetary Fund hopes for quick progress in the work of its mission in Ukraine. As is known, the Fund's delegation will come to Kyiv on November 14. Poul Thomsen, the director of the IMF's European Department said this in an interview with Voice of America.

"In spite of the inspiring progress, some issues are still unsolved", he said.

The official admitted that, apart from achievements, there is still some "disappointment in terms of combating corruption and state management" in Ukraine.

According to Thomsen, the country showed progress in macroeconomics and fiscal policy. However, he believes there are setbacks in the structural reforms in this country.

"It is important to save the independence of Central Bank, reach the progress in the financial sector and carry on with the budget consolidation", the official concluded.
