Adopted Ukraine 2016 budget does not guarantee obtaining IMF tranche

The Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada adopting the budget for 2016 does not yet guarantee obtaining the third tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko said Wednesday at a press conference.

"While the adoption of the budget is a prerequisite for getting a new tranche of the IMF, it does not guarantee it," Jaresko said.
