As we reported earlier, according to Denys Shmygal, Ukrainian Prime Minister, Ukraine could get the next loan from the IMF in February or March 2021.

"We would like to get it at the latest in February. These are the terms that we are discussing with the IMF unless there are any surprises again," he stated.
