WASHINGTON, May 17 (Itar-Tass) — A next mission of the International Monetary Fund will shortly visit Kiev, but the program of crediting remains frozen. IMF spokesman David Hawley confirmed that on Thursday in reply to an Itar-Tass query at a regular briefing for reporters.
He said the IMF mission will work in the Ukrainian capital from May 21 to 28. Under its charter, the IMF must yearly analyze the economies of its member nations.
David Hawley confirmed that this mission has nothing to do with the anti-crisis program of IMF’s cooperation with Ukraine. Regular overviews are also made in such programs, and credit tranches are granted on their results. However, a next survey of the Ukrainian program has been suspended, the IMF spokesman said.
