Kristalina Georgieva, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, said that in order to reach final agreements on a new expanded financing program for Ukraine, it is necessary to adopt a law to improve some banking regulation mechanisms, and most importantly - to complete the land reform.
The International Monetary Fund carries out direct external management of Ukraine with its usual cynical methods. The control is being carried out even now, when Ukraine faced with the consequences of a reckless and unprofessional policy of the government, many times aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, when the economy and financial system of our country were on the verge of collapse.
In this situation, the International Monetary Fund goes into open blackmail, forcing the authorities to agree to its requirements and adopt laws regarding the banking system and, most importantly, regarding the sale of agricultural land.
The Opposition Platform - For Life runs totally against the sale of land and has always been doing and is doing everything possible to ensure that the law that will allow the plunder of land is not adopted. Our position is shared and supported by citizens of Ukraine - over 70% of them strongly oppose the sale of land. Despite this, the Ukrainian government, which is under strict external control and actual control of the IMF, continues to push through this decision, which is essentially destroying the country.
In a situation of global crisis, the IMF has once again demonstrated its readiness to use the problems of its "partner" to achieve its own goals. Obviously, Ukraine cannot count on the help of the International Monetary Fund, thus, the authorities should hold negotiations like these with the Russian Federation, China, and other countries that are able to provide such assistance.
This is the only real way out, that will save Ukraine and take it out of the most difficult economic and social situation.
