SYNDEY, February 23, 8:23 /ITAR-TASS/. ass) - Russia will make a decision on disbursing another tranche of its financial assistance to Ukraine soon after the latter forms a new government, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told reporters.
“We really discussed acquisition of Ukraine’s 2 billion eurobonds last week. As the political situation has strongly changed, we should realise with what government to cooperate, therefore we plan to wait until a new government is formed and we see its policy. Only then we will make a decision”, he said.
He added that Russia supports requirements of the International Monetary Fund for Ukraine.
“The fund has a great experience of helping countries that face a difficult situation with the balance of payments and with the budget. There are tried-and-tested instruments for such cases. Undoubtedly, the IMF experience will be useful for Ukraine today,” Siluanov said.
The talks on disbursing of the IMF’s loan to the former Ukrainian authorities had lasted for two years. In exchange for $15 billion financial assistance Ukraine should have made the hryvna rate more flexible, reduce the budget spending and gradually increase energy tariffs.
