Former President of Georgia and former Chairman of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had instructed him to negotiate with the International Monetary Fund. He told about it during a briefing.
"The president has instructed me to negotiate with the IMF, with other international financial institutions. Ukraine needs much more help than it already receives. I have a very successful experience in cooperation and assertion of national interests," he said.
Saakashvili believes that Ukraine needs extraordinary solutions in order to solve the economic crisis.
"Ukraine is entering a very strong economic storm, economic crisis. We need extraordinary solutions not only to save the Ukrainian economy, but also to minimize the impact on every Ukrainian family," he said.
Saakashvili said that he would continue "the program of President Zelensky and his team."
As we reported earlier, Ukraine can count on a $2 billion tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the second quarter of 2020.
