KIEV, July 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko has accused parliament of delaying the adoption of four legal acts crucial to borrowing $3 billion from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
"This week our country might have complied with the conditions necessary for further progress in cooperation with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. None of the four legal acts necessary for that progress has been adopted," Jaresko said on her page in Facebook.
Jaresko argues that the Ukrainian parliament should pass a law on system that would safeguard retail bank deposits, thereby improving the protection of individuals’ savings.
She insists that the Verkhovna Rada must vote for a law on a mechanism to exert influence on Naftogaz’s debtor enterprises and for specifying the legal powers of the national anti-corruption bureau.
Also, she wants the adoption of a bill on control of the utilities sector.
"We are urging Ukraine’s legislators to make the adoption of these legal acts their top priority next week. We cannot afford to disregard the financial support the people of Ukraine need so much in the days of the grave economic crisis," Jaresko said addressing the national legislature.
