“Further cooperation with the IMF is extremely important for maintaining financial stability in Ukraine. By the end of this year, our state has to repay foreign and domestic debt in foreign currency in amount over $5 billion,” Smolii said.
According to him, the volume of international reserves currently amounts to $19.3 billion, which is enough to fulfill sovereign liabilities.
