MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has not been cooperating with the International Monetary Fund in searching for ways of providing financial assistance to Ukraine so far.
“The Ukrainian side and the International Monetary Fund continue such a search, and we (Russia and IMF) do not, as far as I know,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, adding that a Russian representative worked at the IMF, thus “Russia indirectly participates in the process.”
“However, it is difficult to speak of disbursing financial aid until Ukraine chooses new legitimate authorities,” Peskov said.
