"Further revision is inevitable," he told a press conference. "Whether this adjustment increases the funding allotted will become known at the next conference expected in October or November with participation of Ukraine's donor countries if there are still any by that moment."
Russia never planned to vote against another tranche for Ukraine in this stabilization program, Storchak added noting worrisome signals about implementation of the stabilization program coming from the Ukrainian government.
“The fact that Ukraine’s vast territories with an important economic potential do not work to implement the stabilization program is a major factor that casts shadow on whether the stabilization program is realizable,” said Storchak. Another problem for the IMF was, he said, that the program was for the first time in the history allocated to a member country suffering from military actions in its territory.
