This sum equals 332 billion hryvnias or 11,93 billion dollars.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine cooperates with the IMF since 1992. Kyiv received nine tranches within this time.
Ukraine partially repaid the IMF under the stand-by program of 2014. Kyiv repaid two tranches - $37 billion and $87 billion.
The loan program for Ukraine in the amount of $17,01 billion was approved by the IMF at the end of April 2014. The first tranche of the stand-by loan in the amount of $3,19 billion was sent to Ukraine at the beginning of May.
The IMF Board of Directors approved the allocation of $17,5 billion for Ukraine in March 2015 by the EFF (Extended Fund Facility) four-year program instead of the stand-by program.
The stand-by program was replaced by the “scheme of extended funding” due to the long-term need of Ukraine’s pay balance.
Ukraine received the first $5 billion tranche under this program in March of 2015, the second one – $1,7 billion in August of 2015, the third one - $1 billion in September of 2016, and the fourth one - $1 billion in April of 2017.
