As we reported earlier, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) stated that Ukraine should reduce the roles of the State and oligarchs in economics. IMF representative Jerry Rice reported that during the briefing in Washington as the press release of the IMF informed. 

"We think that Ukraine needs to advance some structural reforms. Again, notably, to improve governance and tackle corruption and to reduce the role of the state and oligarchs while continuing as I said to assign fiscal and monetary policies to maintain macro stability," he said. 

Particularly, the IMF representative mentioned that the negotiations with Ukraine about the new program are still continuing and "it's not surprising that they last so long".
