As we reported earlier, today, during the press conference, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that that the signature of a memorandum between Ukraine and the IMF would take place in May.
"Now, I will sign the law on banking activity, the final requirement for the signature of the memorandum between the state of Ukraine and the IMF. We will sign this memorandum. I'm confident we will sign it in May; one shouldn't put that on hold. I will soon get the bank law - tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, maybe even today. And the doors will be open to the IMF assistance that we fought for so desperately, and you all saw this. We fought for it even in the Verkhovna Rada (the Parliament, - 112 International), Zelensky said.
