President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during an online briefing said that there is no threat to cooperation between Ukraine and the International Monetary Fund, because MPs have unblocked the adoption of banking law. The briefing was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Among other things, I want to thank the MPs of Ukraine, and especially the Servant of the People party, which yesterday unblocked the adoption of banking law. 16 000 edits will not scare us and will not disrupt important cooperation between Ukraine and the IMF,” the president said.
He noted that the IMF will receive the necessary funds for the economy," despite the attempts of some political forces to prevent this process."
“I think that everything has become completely clear to the people of Ukraine: the result is on the scoreboard. I also want to emphasize how important it is to“ warm up ”our economy and give it an impulse after quarantine,” Zelensky added.
Amendments to the legislation on the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) concerning the grounds for dismissal of the Burea’s head may create a problem in the cooperation with Ukraine as European Truth reported earlier citing Head of IMF Mission Ron van Rooden.
Ron van Rooden sent a letter to deputies of the head of the President’s Office Yulia Kovaliv and Andriy Smirnov. A source at the office confirmed the information about the letter on the condition of anonymity.
It is reported that the grounds for the letter are ‘proposals on the amendments of the legislation, which will extend the grounds for the dismissal of the NABU head by inclusion the decision of the court about administrative corruption violation’.
