The successful nationalization of PrivatBank and adoption of the state budget for 2017 give reason to expect that Ukraine will receive the fourth tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) program in January 2017, Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Valeriya Gontareva said.
“We are already preparing (for the 4th tranche). I think, we will receive the next tranche in January,” she said in on the Vesti radio on Dec. 22 evening.
Gontareva noted that the international community has welcomed the nationalization of PrivatBank. She recalled that the issue of the country’s largest bank has been spelled out in the latest memorandum between the Fund and Ukraine on the obtaining of third tranche of the EFF credit.
