Ukraine seeks at least 1 billion euros in new aid from EUStaff Writer | March 8, 2018
Ukraine is looking forward to receiving at least one billion euro (1.24 billion U.S. dollars) from the European Union (EU) under the new macro-financial assistance program, Ukrainian Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk said.
Help The program has been preliminarily approved
According to the minister, the final sum targeted by Kiev under the program is 1.8 billion euro ($2.24 billion).
Under the previous cooperation program, which was approved in July 2015, Ukraine received 1.2 billion euro ($1.49 billion) in two tranches from the EU.
The disbursement of the third tranche was delayed as Ukraine has not fully adopted several reforms, which were agreed with the EU within the program. ■
