The fourth revision of the program based on the International Monetary Fund's Extended Fund Facility (EFF) will be possible when Ukraine fulfills previously taken obligations, as representative of the IMF in Ukraine Gösta Ljungman told Interfax-Ukraine.

Ljungman said that in order for the program to be revised, Kyiv has to fulfill a pension reform, take measures for speeding up privatization, and achieve concrete results in fighting corruption. Not less important is following the program and abiding by previously reached agreements on measures in fiscal and energy sectors.

As it was reported earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) David Lipton. They discussed the Memorandum on economy and financial policy in the context of the allocation of the next tranche to Ukraine.
