"Ukraine will receive more than $ 2.7 billion from the IMF free of charge and without any additional conditions," the statement said.
It is noted that the decision was made by the IMF Board of Directors at the suggestion of the Kristalina Georgieva Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund to help rebuild the world economy, which suffered from the coronavirus pandemic. In total, Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) worth 650 billion dollars will be distributed among the countries.
Ukraine is expected to receive a tranche of more than $ 2.7 billion on August 23.

According to experts of the American financial holding J. P. Morgan, the second tranche from the IMF in the amount of 3 billion dollars can be provided to Ukraine by the end of 2021.
