The new Ukrainian government could be formed in the late August or early September. Oleksandr Danylyuk, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council said that during the interview at 1+1 TV channel.
'Due to the snap election [in the Parliament], the government may be shaped already in late August or early September', Danylyuk claimed.
At that, he said that if the parliamentary election took place in October, gettng the next IMF loan would be delayed considerably. In that case, the IMF would have to wait for the new government to be shaped, and that could have been dragged until the end of the year.
Thus, president Zelensky's team 'speeded up getting the new IMF loan'; 'otherwise, it might have faced a financial crisis', Danylyuk concluded.
The IMF expressed readiness to come to Kyiv after the early parliamentary election and to continue negotiations with the Ukrainian government - as soon as it makes up its mind on the policy priorities.
