KIEV, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has got no concrete proposals from the European Union on financial assistance to the country, Acting Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said on Wednesday.
“Neither the EU nor international financial institutions have formed a separate financial aid package,” Kozhara said. “We have not seen any concrete proposals and we are waiting for them,” he added, noting that Ukraine needed assistance for the stabilization of its financial and economic situation.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said on Tuesday that she intended to discuss the developments in Ukraine with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. She said she was planning a trip to Washington on Thursday to meet with the IMF managing director, adding that the situation in Ukraine would be among the issues to be discussed.
According to her, the EU could help Kiev to cope with major financial problems, but only if it saw necessary economic reforms.
