Media: IMF is ready to close eyes on land reform

СМИ: МВФ готов закрыть глаза на земельную реформу

The basic condition for the disbursement of the next tranche to Kiev will be the adoption of pension reform.

The international monetary Fund is ready to leave the basic condition for the disbursement of the next tranche of Ukraine the adoption of pension reform. While the requirements will be excluded the adoption of land reform. It is reported by Interfax-Ukraine, citing a source close to the negotiations.

According to the interlocutor of the Agency, the IMF has made this decision due to the fact that between the Foundation and the Cabinet of Ministers no agreement on some important positions of the future land reform, and the relevant draft has not yet been developed.

However, he said, the project of pension reform has submitted to the Verkhovna Rada after preliminary agreement with the IMF.

At the same time, another Agency source in the government said that today the IMF is not officially confirmed the readiness to reset the draft Memorandum lighthouse for the land reform in Ukraine.

“To say that any beacon is removed, you need to get official written confirmation of this Fund, but such, as far as we know, did not arrive yet”, – he said.

According to him, land reform, along with pension, medical, judicial and reform of public sector enterprises remains a priority in Ukraine and is in the focus of attention of the international partners. However, their format is not a subject of international recommendations and, as before, remains entirely at the discretion of the Ukrainian side.

The spokesman added that the consultations at the government level and discussions with market participants and agricultural associations continue in previously taken pace, and the agreed position will be reflected in the draft law on turnover of lands, which will be submitted to Parliament.

As reported Корреспондент.net, the day before 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.

We will remind, Ukraine initially 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.
