Recall that in March 2015, the IMF opened for Ukraine a four-year EFF program total volume $16,75 billion from the first tranche of $5 billion.

As reported Корреспондент.netthis week, Bloomberg reported that the IMF has postponed the allocation of the fifth tranche of Ukraine at the end of the year. The reason for this decision – the Ukrainian Parliament will not have time before the summer recess to vote for the necessary reforms. And the main problem mentioned land reform.

Note that initially Ukraine expected to receive the fifth tranche of $1.9 billion in may of this year. But for this it was necessary to perform several important conditions of the IMF. Later, expectations about the IMF tranche has moved to the autumn.
