KIEV, December 27 /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed international economic aid to Ukraine by telephone on Saturday, the Ukrainian president’s press service said.
Both leaders agreed that a new IMF programme would help settling the economic situation in Ukraine and would stimulate other international donors to send aid to Ukraine.
