The delay by the International monetary Fund decision on the allocation of Ukraine the next tranche of money can be related to three different aspects: politics, text of the Memorandum with the IMF or the blockade of the occupied part of Donbass. This opinion in the “Evening Prime” to “112 Ukraine” stated the people’s Deputy Oksana Prodan.

“I can offer three possible answers. The first option is a political one. Today different discuss the situation in the NBU and the Parliament. Therefore, it may be, the IMF postpones the decision of question in relation to some political situation. The second part, it questions the very text of the Memorandum. Because we know that no one from the government has not confirmed the agreement of the full text. Maybe that is still being negotiated, the text of which nobody knows, including in Parliament. And the third answer is that in fact, just yesterday, representatives of the NBU gave new calculations of the IMF, which associated with the blockade of the occupied part of Donbass. And this is a new calculation of the economic forecasts, the IMF requires time to make their assessment”, – said the Deputy.

According to her, depending on who is going to discuss this issue, can use different options. “In fact, while the IMF will declare their position, we can only speculate”, she added.

Today it became known that the Ukrainian issue was not on the agenda of the International monetary Fund until April 7.

As reported, the question of the allocation of Ukraine tranche of the program of expanded financing (EFF) for $ 1 billion. disappeared from the agenda of the IMF Board of Directors on 20 March. The Ministry of Finance reported that this is due to the trade blockade of Donbass.

We will remind, open in March 2015 the four-year EFF program, totaling about of 17.11 billion. with the first tranche of $ 5 billion. expected quarterly revision of the program, the allocation in 2015 of three more tranches of 1.63 billion dollars. and a decrease in quarterly tranches in 2016-2018 to 0.61 billion.
