Lagarde discussed the latest political developments and the efforts

As reported, the IMF Executive Board on April 30 approved a two-year Small Business Administration (SBA) worth Special drawing rights (SDA) 10.976 billion (about $17.01 billion) for Ukraine. Early
in May, the IMF transferred the first tranche worth SDR 2.058 billion

the sides discussed the adjustment of the macroeconomic forecast and
the state budget for 2014, including due to the unstable situation in
