Ukraine has failed to fulfill two prior actions for obtaining the next loan tranche of the International Monetary Fund. This was stated by Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk while answering questions during the Atlantic Council roundtable in Washington, - UNIAN reports.
"Under the program of cooperation with the IMF, there are currently two prior actions that have not been fulfilled. The first is adoption of the law on the anti-corruption court. And the second is approval of the mechanism for automatic gas tariff adjustment to the market rate", - Danylyuk said.
According to him, the law on the anti-corruption court can be adopted in April-May of this year. As for the gas tariffs, the minister explained that it was not about specific prices, but about creating a competitive gas market in Ukraine.
Earlier, the minister predicted that Ukraine would receive the next loan tranche of the IMF for $2 billion in May-June this year. According to the forecasts of the National Bank of Ukraine, receipt of the next tranche of the IMF is possible at the beginning of the third quarter.
