Also this year, Ukraine will receive assistance from the IMF and the European Commission.

We also plan to receive macro-financial assistance from the European Commission (1,2 billion euros + 0.5 billion euros)," the report said.

In September, the International Monetary Fund will assess how much Ukraine lives up to the stand-by programme, and decide on the provision of the second tranche of the loan for this country. Jerry Rice, the director of the Fund's press office said so in his commentary for Ukrinform news agency.

"This progamme (stand-by, - 112 International) has just begun, and currently, it's difficult to name a date of the first revision to take place. But I can say we're looking for September", Rice said.

He reiterated that the stand-by programme provides Ukraine with access for wider international financial support, including that from the EU.
