Kiev has lost 40 million euros of EU aid Khan

Киев потерял 40 миллионов евро помощи ЕС - Хан

Ukraine could receive from EU 50 million euros, but will receive only 10

Ukraine has fulfilled only one program at 50 million euros, therefore, will receive only $ 10 million.

The European Commissioner for enlargement and neighbourhood policy Johannes Hahn during his visit to Kyiv on 9 November, expressed disappointment at the lack of progress in implementation by Ukraine of the conditions for receiving 50 million euros under the plan Contract Reforms for investment, writes Interfax-Ukraine.

“I don’t want to hide their disappointment with the Contract Reform for investment, where they talked about aid of 50 million euros. Unfortunately, only one condition has been fulfilled. We could use 10 million, and the remaining 40 million will be lost. It’s not that we can please,” said Khan at a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman on Friday in Kiev.

Note, the new contract Reforms for investment Khan suggested at the end of April. He offers to Kiev access to the new financial instrument of the EU external investment plan. Funds should go to compensate lending banking institutions and investment in the real sector of the economy.

To do this, Ukraine had before the parliamentary summer recess, to fulfill three conditions: to ensure the independence of the regulator in the energy sector (NKREKU); to ensure the proper functioning of the business Ombudsman; to repeal the requirement of filing an electronic Declaration to anti-corruption activists.

Earlier today, Khan met with Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman. During the meeting, the Commissioner noted the progress and setbacks in the Ukrainian reforms.
