on social media

The International Monetary Fund has postponed its meeting, previously scheduled for March 20, in which it had planned to approve its next loan tranche for Ukraine worth $1 billion.

According to Ukraine’s Finance Ministry, the IMF first needs to “clarify calculations” regarding the economic impact of the latest events in Ukraine’s war-torn east.

The IMF’s four-year lending program worth $17.5 billion started on March 11, 2015. The expected $1 billion will be the fourth tranche that would bring total disbursements to $8.32 billion.

One would think that President Poroshenko being a businessman would understand the importance of all businesses in Ukraine work in as efficient manner as possible. Relying on revenue from businesses that are partially in separatists Donbas was/is a risky endeavor at best. The president should have begun serious talks with Akhmetov and separatist representatives to resolve the situation. He also should have brought in the nationalist right parties that started th blockade and explained the facts of life to them in no uncertain terms! You either work to implement Minsk II using the Akhmetov and the jobs and aid his businesses provides as positive reasons to remain in Ukraine.
There is a saying in America "sh!t or get off the pot". Poroshenko has been dithering around and the west including the IMF are growing tired of the foot dragging, he either moves forward and implements Minsk II or he says separatist Donbas is a lost cause then declare it and move on with a plan to make the rest of Ukraine successful.
