The International Monetary Fund will provide Ukraine $ 5 billion in gratuitous assistance to fight against coronavirus. This was stated by MP from the faction "Servant of the people" Yevgen Shevchenko on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

“Now the IMF has allocated money to fight against coronavirus for countries like us. It's about 60 billion, and, as far as I know, 5 billion free aid ... should now receive Ukraine. It's about five billion dollars, and this is not a loan, this money will not need to be returned," Shevchenko said.

According to him, the IMF is providing similar assistance to all countries that have fallen into a similar situation with coronavirus.
