Comments about this ГолосUA, said political scientist, Director of the Ukrainian Institute of policy analysis and management Ruslan Bortnik.
I think it is a rhetorical figure of speech Minister. He had to say, see, and so we have with the IMF is not very good, let at least one condition of the IMF will raise gas prices. This is an attempt to samoupravlenii cooperation with the IMF in the eyes of the population,” – said the expert.
At the same time, R. Bortnik believes that the international monetary Fund (IMF) is able to determine what commitments Ukraine fulfilled and which were not.
“In General, the IMF will decide what is done and what is not. If the IMF gives loans, therefore, believes that everything is fine and requirements are met by Ukraine. And is guided by a different logic. Yes, we have a lot of liabilities, they relate to different kinds of registries relate to the struggle for the strengthening of markets, bezveza all trade restrictions. But this did not prevent the IMF to Fund it, despite the fact that the country is in a state of war Finance, and the country for six months before the election, also do not have to Finance,” concluded the analyst.
We will remind, Ukraine has not fulfilled 15 obligations to the International monetary Fund. This was stated by Minister of social policy Andrei Reva, the press service of the Ministry Thursday, September 13.
“All of our history of cooperation with the IMF is a story of unfulfilled promises. Today there are about fifteen of these outstanding commitments, which are called “beacons”, and the mission of the IMF brings to the agenda of those that are important at the current stage, to achieve macro-financial stability,” he said. According to Reva, the settlement of the gas prices being discussed since 2008.
“If we talk about the price of gas, this beacon runs since 2008, it was the first time in the Memorandum with the IMF stipulates the obligation of the Ukrainian government to align domestic gas prices with prices of imported gas. Under these plans were obtained large funds, for a total of ten billion dollars, but this “lighthouse” then was not implemented”, – he said. Reva also added that the Cabinet is negotiating with the IMF to establish a “just for men” the price of gas.
