Recently, Ukraine received the first tranche by the new cooperation program with the IMF under conditions of the Stand-By Arrangement (SBA), which the IMF Council adopted on December 18, 2018. 
The credit program for Ukraine in the amount of $17.1 billion was approved by the IMF in late April 2014, and the first tranche of Stand-By Arrangement loan in the amount of $ 3.19 billion was granted in early May. 

In March 2015, the Board of Directors of the International Monetary Fund approved the allocation of $ 17.5 billion to Ukraine under the 4-year EFF (Extended Fund Facility) program instead of the SBA program.

The SBA program has been replaced by the Extended Fund Facility due to the longer need of the balance of payments of Ukraine.
